Experts are of the view that the proceeds can be used to deleverage the balance sheet of Tata Sons, which paid $1.27 billion to Docomo to settle a dispute with the Japanese telecom giant after it exited their joint venture in 2013. The latter had to shell out $1.2 billion to NTT DoCoMo past year in order to settle the long-standing dispute with the Japanese telecom giant after it exited their joint venture in 2013. Tata sold Tata Teleservices Ltd's mobile-phone operations to Bharti Airtel Ltd previous year and pledged to pay the unit's obligations. In 2017, Tatas had announced that Tata Teleservices will merge with Bharti Airtel on a no-debt, no-cash basis.

Tata Sons plans to use the money it raises to pay lenders to the company's subsidiary Tata Teleservices and raise stake in some other units, unidentified people told the news outlet. Tata Sons has mandated lenders for a $1.5 billion six-year loan. The Group is clearly in a hurry to exit its troubled mobile telephony business.
