Bangalore, Sep 18 (ANI): The Karnataka Government on Thursday offered 1,000 acres of land in case Tata Motors decides to relocate its small car project, Nano.
After meeting Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, Tata Motors Managing Director G Ravikanth told reporters that Yeddyurappa said he will give all support, assistance and required incentives if we want it in case of re-locating the plant.
The project requires about 1,000 acres of land. It is an integrated project, Ravikanth said.
Asked if Karnataka government has offered 1,000 acres of land, he said yes, and added if we have to have the project it requires 1,000 acres.
To another query whether Tata Motors was looking at re-locating the plant, he said, We are considering alternatives if required, indicating that a final decision to pull out from West Bengal in the wake of land allotment row was yet to be taken.
Tata Motors has a manufacturing facility at Dharwad in the north Karnataka region, where it produces buses and tractors.
