Tata Group Chairman Cyrus Mistry on Friday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose government is working to reboot the economy.

Tata Group Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata and his successor at the salt-to-software group Mistry, who had been invited to the swearing in, were unable to attend as they were travelling abroad.

Mistry took over as head of the $96.79 billion diversified conglomerate in December 2012.

To usher the Indian economy into a high growth path, the government had stated that it would work to rein in inflation, reignite the investment cycle, accelerate job creation and restore the confidence of the domestic and international community.
