Belgaum ideal for Nano plant
2,611 acres of land available at Vantamuri’Belgaum has good infrastructure, says Abhay Kumar Patil, MLA
Tata Motors can take a look at an “ideal site” in Belgaum before taking any decision on relocating its Nano car manufacturing plant said Mr.patil.
Belgaum, which had moderate and pleasant climate, was ideal for the plant. Belgaum had infrastructure such as airport, railway station, and express highway (NH 4), and Goa port was just 150 km away.
The city had well-established industries, including those manufacturing automobile components, and skilled work force.
Belgaum Chamber of Commerce and Industry would extend its support to Tata Motors if it established its car manufacturing plant in Belgaum.
A proposal to Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa stating that there was 2,611 acres of government revenue land in and around Vantamuri in Belgaum and Hukkeri taluks, part of which could be given to Tata Motors to establish its car manufacturing plant.
This blog was the first one to mention about Nano being getting out of Bengal and may be it will come to Dharwad, but it seems to be making its way to Gujrat as of now. I would request all the Members of the chambers and the MLA to call on the Tatas directly to come and see the place. Now they will give a memorandum to the CM, then the CM will look at it and by this time the Nano will come out on the road from the Gujrat factory.
We need to be very reactive and urgency in action is required, I Guess.
