Unable to change permission of the files on mounted partitions in ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I have just installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I mounted my SOFTS(/dev/sda6), a NTFS partition by selecting it on nautilus. After that I openend the terminal and tried to change the permissions of a file. The command executed but the file permissions remained unchanged. I tried changing the permissions by using root privileges but that did not work either.
