India's top business leader Ratan Tata has got over Rs 1 crore as compensation for serving as an independent director on the board of NYSE-listed Alcoa Inc during 2012.
Tata, who retired as head of salt-to-software Indian conglomerate Tata Group last December, has been on the board of the USD 26-billion firm aluminum producer since 2007.
