This is a phishing mail. You may consider to report it to Tata Motors . It is a scam. People who are no way related to the company creates such frauds and schemes. There are many more companies whose brand name have been used by such unscrupulous people for fraudulent activities. Please ignore them. Do spread the awareness of such scams so that other don't fall for it. Do not interact, pay and share any details about yourself ever with such people.

Videocon never mailed any candidate such mails. It was a scam. You would further find Royal hotels and British petroleum with such job offer in lieu of money. Please ignore them all.
The best way to detect them is to check the email id. Any official mail would always have an official email ids. Whereas these scams will have id as used in the mail your shared company@generic domain.
Had this communication been sent to you by the Tata Motors Manager it would have been the manager's or some official domain like that. When these mails used gmail, yahoo or any other private domain other than the official domain, please ignore them. Please do spread this awareness.

If you feel that any of such email is something suspicious; in that email; click on "Show Original" or "Show Full Header" tabs.
In that document search "Originating-IP" where you will find the following type of "[188.8.131.52]" digit string. This is the Physical Address of that computer from which the said email was sent.
Now in the Google website; type ip2location and go to that website.
And type such digit string in given IP Address space.
Now click "Find Location".
Now you can get that Computer's Physical Address like Country's Name, Region, and City etc. This is absolutely free, so you can check it anytime.
With the help of Physical address; you may verify this type of emails.

As (Cite Contribution) mentioned that all these mails are a scam, there are some consultancies which are fraud and are doing it just to earn some quick money they even have forged offer letters from some of the companies.
My recruitment team has gone through this when one of the candidate came with an offer letter of our company which was signed by our recruitment Manager- after looking into the details we found that the letter was a copy of an original letter and was sold to him for Rs. 5000/- by someone who was sitting in the car.
So kindly just avoid such mails completely...Tata Motors is aware of such mails and are taking legal actions against these people.

Thankyou for sharing this incident. This is pretty scary .
A request to all the candidates who may get schemed into such scams, please do not pay any money in lieu of a letter. As Archana have mentioned, it is fake and would initiate the corrective action. Please stay away from it , if still you are asked to pay, approach the company directly .
Please do spread this awareness.

I received the very same sms on my phone today.
On the offer letter 2 phone numbers are mentioned 09012422385, 09012422344.
I even called the first number a few minutes ago and someone picked up and asked me to call back tomorrow.
If some authorities are reading this, please apprehend these criminals.
