Tata Motors has reportedly faced the most significant quarterly loss among Indian corporates. This development took place after its UK subsidiary, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive, was hit by asset impairment in the December quarter. The non-monetary loss of Rs 26 thousand nine hundred and sixty-one crore was due to uncertainties around Brexit, slowing sales in China, and technological disruptions facing JLR. P B Balaji, the chief financial officer at Tata Motors, said that the impairment at JLR would help the company reduce depreciation and amortisation costs by almost 300 million pounds in a year and reduce the break-even point.
