TA-TA Singur

I guess  the trio of Mamta, Medha and Arundhati are happy as they can take  Bengal back to the stone age! The TMC rep on the box invoking Jalianwalanbagh yesterday was pathetic.

Today's new paper says TATA has decided to move out of West Bengal. What a pity. This will not only hamper the Nano development but also TATA's other projects as well. And poeple doubt TATAs, if that would have been the case. Then they should once visit Jamshedpur

Very sad for Bengal. I am not to clear about the dispute over the land but as of wot i can make, it has been blown out of proportion. The Tata's are known for their ethics and i doubt they would have used dirty tactics to get the job done. I hope the '1 lakh car' will still be a Rs 1 lakh car after the added expenditure of shifting plants is worked into the price.

Tatas shocked by Singur deal; to suspend work

September 8, 2008

Miffed at not being consulted before West

Bengal government reached a settlement with Trinamool Congress's Mamata

Banerjee, Tatas could pull out from Singur as they feel that return of

any portion of land would make the project to manufacture the world's

cheapest car unviable.

Groping in the dark about details of

the settlement, which the state government had not communicated to them

till late afternoon, the corporate house said on Monday: "Tata Motors

is distressed at the limited clarity on the outcome."

Tata Motors said it would not resume

work on its small-car plant in Singur, claiming that the outcome of

talks between the government and opposition parties to end protests

against the project lacked clarity.

"Tata Motors is distressed at the

limited clarity on the outcome of the discussions between the state

government and the representatives of the agitators in Singur," a

statement issued by the company said.

At the end of talks mediated by West

Bengal Governor Gopal Krishna Gandhi yesterday, an official statement

said that the government would respond to the demands of those farmers

who have not received compensation and asked vendors of Tata Motors not

to go ahead with construction of their respective facilities in the

meantime.

The company said that it would review

its stated position only if it was satisfied that the viability of the

project was not being impinged.

Yours Truly

The Nano's sad saga continues.

Yes, I too saw on news. The agreement reached says vendor base to be located somewhere else! This would not let Tata attain the 1L mark. There are other impunities also, 100 acres to be given back to farmers , etc. Therefore, Tata is not happy.

As uncertainty looms large over the fate of Tata Motors' Nano factory at Singur, grapevine has it that the Tatas are gearing up

to roll out about 1,000 Nano cars from their plant in Pune.

The company, sources said, in the last stages of preparation for this."Rolling

out the Nano before the Durga Puja has become a prestige issue for Tata

Motors. To start with, the project got delayed because of torrential

rains last year and now political imbroglio has put the entire project

under jeopardy. The company can't help but think of implementing Plan

B," a source closely associated with the Singur factory said on Friday.Pooh-poohing

the rumours that inflation and inordinate delay may goad the company to

hike the price of the Rs 1-lakh people's car, he said: "There is no

such decision. In fact, the company is going out of its way to keep the

price at Rs 1 lakh."

"The company still hasn't fully lost hope on

the Singur factory and feels the impasse could be resolved in a

fortnight or so," he added.

When asked about the Nano rolling out

from the Pune factory this October, an official spokesperson for Tata

Motors said, "The company dissociates itself from any speculative

comments at the moment."

Meanwhile, a committee constituted under

the aegis of West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi may seek more

time to submit its final report on land to be provided to the agitating

farmers.After a three-hour meeting, Rabindranath Bhattacharjee,

Trinamool Congress MLA and chairman of the committee, said that the

committee could submit an interim report and then seek more time for

its final report.The report was to be submitted within seven

days of the agreement forged between the West Bengal government and the

agitating farmers side represented by the Trinamool Congress.

Yours Truly

1000 Nanos rolling out of the Tata's Pune assembly line. Mumbai may have a demand for 500 Nanos in the first month and Delhi for another 500. What about the demand from other metros/cities/towns? There will be unofficial black market premiums and speculators will make a killing for sure!

Bad news Guys...

From: IBNlive.com

New Delhi: Tata Motors is scripting the last chapter of its long-running battle in West Bengal. The company has begun its pullout from the Nano plant in Singur.

The official announcement on the pullout is expected within the week.

West Bengal government sources told CNN-IBN that Tata Motors have given up on the project. According to sources, the Tatas started moving equipment and plant parts from the site to an undisclosed location 10 days ago. Vendors have also removed their equipment.

Sources say that both the state government as well as Tata Motors feel that the project cannot take off in Singur, given the strong opposition from Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress.

The pullout is expected to take some time, but sources say that around 1,000 cars will roll out from the Tata Motors Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand by mid-October.

Meanwhile, Karnataka, Maharasthra and Haryana are now the frontrunners to anchor the mother plant.

Reacting to Tata

It is said that fishermen dump the live captured crabs in an open basket and none of them escapes. Any one who tries to escape by climbing the sides of basket is dragged down by others.

 

India has a strong presence of 'Crab mentality' people jo na khud kuch karte hain aur na auro ko kuch karne dete hain.

 

Let us congratulate Mamta who has succeeded in putting back Bengal by 20 years, in the name of supporing 400 families but in reality filling up her own pockets courtsey by the competetior financer of the agitation.

 

Bengal has lost all the fresh industrial investment and 100s of crores in taxes per year which the project might have generated.

Should be a lesson to both Mamta's TMC as well as the CPM. the former for the current mess, and the latter for leading to it over decades.

I feel (only a wee bit) sorry for the 'aam admi' of Bengal, since it may take 50 years before any serious investment comes to Bengal. Only a wee bit since he has voted in governments which have led to the mess. I cry for the farmer who sold his land (at whatever price) for the nano - now he cannot farm it either.

All critical components being moed out of Singur. Hope the politicians there are happy. What happens to the farmers who had willingly given their land? They are in a larger number as compared to the unwilling farmers. And I hope the unwilling farmers too are happy, now that they cant farm and they dont have an industry to work for. Tatas are known to develop the area where they go. Jamshedpur is a live example. No one names an entire city in someones name just like that, right?

Launch might still happen this year, but production targets are surely going to be majorly affected.

With the rights issue and the JLR deal already affecting the sentiments about the company in the market, this surely doesnt help.

The new location of the plant to be announced before Oct 16th. Tatas are consulting their vendors this time. Too much happening but still no outcome. I am sure it is frustrating for everyone working on this project.

Both Tata exit from Singur & recent murder of MD of Italian firm in Delhi' date=' would deter investors & they'll think twice before investing in India.

The statement of Oscar Fernandes (later withdrawn almost certainly under pressure from Pranab Mukerjee and/or Manmohan Singh) also does not inspire any confidence. We seem to be lapsing back to the days od socialism

It is all over now for Nano in Singur and the real looser is West Bengal.

 

It is disgusting to see how some petty politicians, financed by businee rivals have managed to put a stop to a project, which was hailed by the world. Mamta Banerjee was the chief beneficiary, Amar singh also tried to jump on the band wagon and now Priya Ranjan Das Munshi have also joined the gang by blaming Tata for pulling out. This amounts to adding insult to injury.

 

Earlier FIAT PAL project was also screwed by a financed strike, after the massive bookings of UNO. The chief beneficiary that time was Maruti of-course.

 

Nano will come on roads ultimately, albeit delayed, but the financer competitor has shown that it is afraid of Nano and does not believe in fair trade practice. The central Government must launch an enquiry to nail the financing company and all those politicians who stoked the fire for their personal gains, should be jailed. But knowing India, it will never happen.

 

Meanwhile we can do our bit by boycotting the products of the culprit company.

True, money game and politics have always ruined one of the best cars. Fiat Uno, not a very successful model has recieved more than 3 lac bookings at one point in time, but what later, its fate... just a nice car but not so nice sales.

Link for sales figure of UNO.
