Shapoorji Pallonji Mistry came to acquire shares of Tata Sons in 1930s when JRD Tata's younger brother, Dorab, in a fit of anger, sold his shares of Tata Sons to construction magnate Pallonji Mistry just after JRD Tata became Chairman in early 1930s. His shareholding is divided equally between his two sons, Shapoor Mistry and Cyrus Mistry.
