So unless Tata skimped and made changes to the structure of the car after NCAP testing, the ratings would still remain the same when tested against the same parameters.
I too thought that his answer was not satisfactory, but as I don't have much knowledge about the factors which influence the structural strength of a car, I felt that he had got some point (though the point about how the alloy wheel design affects crash test rating is not at all acceptable). Thank you for your explanations.
