Ratan Tata Conferred One of UK’s Highest Awards
Tata Group chairman emeritus Ratan Tata was on Monday honoured with Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE), one of the highest civilian awards of Britain.
British High Commissioner, James Bevan conferred the award on Ratan Tata on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II at a ceremony. Mr Tata is the only Indian national to be awarded the GBE since India became a republic in 1950.
“His contribution to the deep ties that exist between the UK and India has been invaluable,” Bevan added.
In 2009, Mr Tata was also conferred the honorary award of Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE).
