After Monday, there will be no over-the-counter market trading of the American Depositary Shares (ADSs) in the US due to regulatory restrictions under the Indian law, Tata Motors said in a regulatory filing.

In November 2022, Tata Motors had said it plans to voluntarily delist its ADS. The company was listed in the US in 2004. Each ADS of Tata Motors represents 5 ordinary shares of the company.
