“It is with deepest sadness that we announce the sudden and untimely death of our beloved Cyrus Pallonji Mistry, 54. He succumbed to injuries sustained in an unfortunate car accident on Sunday,” the family said.
He is survived by his wife Rohiqa, sons Firoz and Zahan, mother Patsy Mistry, sisters Laila Rustom Jehangir and Aloo Noel Tata and brother
Born on July 4, 1968, Mistry holds a degree in civil engineering from London’s Imperial College of Science and Technology and a postgraduate Master of Science in Management from London Business School.
CPM, as he was affectionately known, was an avid reader and joined the family business as director in March 1991, overseeing the group’s construction activities.
Mistry is enterprising
With his vision and eye for detail, he was instrumental in moving the Group from a pure contractor to a value-added player, developing competencies in related areas such as EPC and Design & Build.
He also foresaw and oversaw the Group’s evolution into an end-to-end business group, encompassing design and engineering, construction and asset development, and committed to a journey of lifelong learning across multiple disciplines.
Despite his success, Mistry always kept a low profile, away from the limelight, placed a high value on rectitude and honesty, and was known for his transparency and integrity in all his business dealings, it said.
“He was extremely humble, approachable to all and always lent a helping hand to those less fortunate. He was much loved by his family and was a friend to countless many. We pray that his soul rests in eternal peace,” the family said.
The last rites of Mistry will be performed at the Worli Crematorium on Tuesday at 11 am.
“A friend of many, loved by all. A life well lived,” added the bereaved, asking “No condolence visits please”.
The abrupt departure of the young tycoon Mistry stunned the country and shocked Indian business.
