The surge followed a report in the Times of India that Starbucks was set to open its first cafes in the fast-growing Indian market. The two companies had announced a deal in January this year.
Seattle-based Starbucks has for years been eyeing the Indian market, where large US food and drink giants such as McDonald's, Domino's pizza and Pizza Hut have already established a strong presence.
The Times of India, quoting unnamed sources, said Starbucks had approached other potential Indian partners, including fast-food chain operator Jubilant Foodworks before deciding on Tata Coffee.
India has traditionally been a nation of tea drinkers but economic growth in recent years has led to a shift in preferences, with Western-style coffee shops a major attraction.
