Around 3.99 crore shares were traded in the counter on the NSE so far compared with average daily volumes of 12.37 lakh shares in the past one quarter. Last year, Tata had sold off the Tata Teleservices Ltd.'s mobile-phone operations to Bharti Airtel Ltd.to raise funds for creditors as well.

The $1.5 billion six-year loan is set to be the first offshore syndicated facility taken out by Tata Sons since 2007. Tata Steel is reportedly the highest bidder for both bankrupt companies with a total debt of Rs 60,000 crore.

Tata Sons had 73.5% stake in the software company at the end of December 2017.
