Bhushan steel deal would be financed by Tata Steel's internal cash reserves while the remaining will be borrowed to fund the deal, said Narendran.

"We want the deal to go through. Today, it has gone to National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT). So, let’s see what they say, but we are ready to go. If we get the clearance, we are ready to move in tomorrow," he said.

Speaking to CNBC-TV18, Narendran said Tata Steel will hold 72% in Bhushan Steel post deal and there is no immediate plans for delisting or merger with Tata Steel.

“We are very keen on this. It supplements our existing facilities very well and we see a lot of benefits that we can derive from the footprint that they have,” he further added.
