Well don't know what is happening in Tata motors CV division, there are so many lovely products but hardly any thing come in market,
Starbus is one beautiful looking vehicle and that is not marketed as it should be, they should have pushed the star bus instead of the ultra.
Similarly had seen news on Paradisio but see not movement on that front. it was when Volvo and mercs were ruling the roost in the inter city segment, Paradisio was one to look for, but that never came, Then we saw Scania coming and taking a significant pie. Tatas could have been 3rd entry. Seems they enter segment once its fully saturated.

TML CV division is actually doing well under Girish Wagh. They already have the Starbus Hybrid running in Mumbai. As per my understanding Ultra chassis is a really good one and modular in nature. Paradiso is a rear engined model which required extensive engineering prowess. But Tata Magna (single axle) is already acquired by various STUs. Recently I saw a post in FB featuring 1623 Front Engined Bus Chassis rivalling Bharat Benz. So they are in the game.
