Tata Motors said on Tuesday it will be issuing non-convertible debentures (NCDs) worth 1,000 crore to improve liquidity which has taken a hit among all automakers due to the economic slowdown and Covid-19 lockdown.

The NCDs will be issued in three tranches and a special committee of the company's board is scheduled to convene on May 5, the company said in regulatory filings at stock exchanges.

On March 27, Tata Motors said its passenger vehicle business is being hived off as a separate subsidiary with differentiated focus from commercial vehicle business.
