Tata Group (Tata Sons Private Limited) is considering selling the home appliance operation of Voltas Limited (NSEI:VOLTAS) as the Indian conglomerate foresees difficulties in scaling up the business in a competitive market, according to people familiar with the matter. Tata Group?s management is deliberating the possibility of the sale and hasn?t decided whether to include its local joint venture with Arcelik AS in a deal, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private. Considerations are at an early stage and Tata Group may decide to keep the asset for longer, the people said.

A representative for Tata Group declined to comment.
