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.
