The company had sought 1.5 billion pounds from the UK government to execute its decarbonisation plans.
However, the British government earlier this year made a counteroffer that was much lower than the company’s expectations.
Speaking to PTI, Narendran had said that Tata Steel cannot see its future in the UK without the support of the government there.
