Under the agreement, Tata will increase its network of public Cisco Telepresence rooms by opening 10 new facilities in Starwood's hotels by the year-end, the company said in a regulatory statement.

NEWS| Minor fire at Mumbai's Taj Mahal hotel

A minor fire broke out on Saturday in the heritage building of the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel here due to a short circuit. It was brought under control within a couple of hours and no casualties were reported, fire brigade officials said.




'We sent six fire tenders and eight water tankers to battle the blaze,' an official said. Ajay Mishra, the hotel's senior vice-president (sales and marketing), told reporters that the blaze occurred in the staff locker room area situated in the basement of the heritage building.

Huge clouds of smoke enveloped the building, making it practically invisible from outside. As a precautionary measure, some of the guests in the tower building have been evacuated and shifted to sister hotels of the Taj group, Mishra said.
