Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata and Tata Steel managing director B Muthuraman were present at the meeting at Bombay House.
The nine-round auction, called by the UK Takeover Panel to decide the winner for Corus, would commence at 1630 hrs GMT (2200 hrs IST) and an outcome could be expected latest by January 31. The auction will resume on Wednesday afternoon, (London time) if no deal is completed initially, according to media reports.
The auction process could take the final bid to anything above $11 billion. While Tata has currently bid 500 pence a share for Corus, rival CSN has offered a top bid of 515 pence.
