There’s an atmosphere of crisis in the Indian facilities of Tata where controversy has put a spanner in the works of Nano production.
The Singur plant has been blockaded by farmers from the area who have decided not to cede 162 hectares of terrain destined for factory expansion. The West Bengal government hasn’t reached an agreement with the workers, and won’t be using force to prevent the protests, as occurred a year ago.
Given the situation production has been stopped and while waiting for developments, Tata has threatened the local government with moving production to other areas if a solution cannot be reached in the near future. Keeping manufacturing in India will be essential to maintaining production costs at 100,000 rupies, the famous 1,700 euros so talked about.
