Mumbai: Tata Motors said on Monday it would only review its position in the plant for the low-cost Nano car, where work was suspended last week, if it was confident that the viability of the project was not impinged.
The company said it was “distressed” at the limited clarity on the outcome of talks between the government of West Bengal, where the Nano plant is located, and protestors who had caused disruptions.
“Tata Motors is obliged to continue the suspension of construction and commissioning work at the Nano plant,” it said in a statement.
“We will review our position only if we are satisfied that the viability of the project is not being impinged, the integral nature of the plant and ancillary units are being maintained and all stakeholders are committed to developing a long-term congenial environment for smooth operations of the plant.”
Farmers in Singur, who had forced Tata Motors to suspend work last week, said on Sunday they were ending their protest after the state promised to return some land.
