Nano Likely To Roll Out From Pantnagar Plant

Nano Likely To Roll Out From Pantnagar Plant

RTTNews) -  Amidst speculations that Tata Motors is moving out from Singur, reports say that Nano is likely to roll out from Pantnagar plant.

It is possible that Tata Motors announces pulling out Nano plant from Singur officially after the return of its Managing Director, Ravi Kant's who is on an overseas trip, the Economic Times reported Thursday. The West Bengal State Industry Minister, Nirupam Sen told state Cabinet that the Singur project is not likely to take off.

A team from Tata Motors is expected to meet top officials of Uttarakhand government to press for 100-acre plot adjacent to its existing unit in Pantnagar. Tata is planning to acquire about 1,100 acres of land to re-equip the Pantnagar complex to manufacture both Ace pick-up truck as well as Nano.

Uttarakhand government was one of the first in inviting Tatas to relocate the Nano plant to the state when work suspended at Singur on August 29. The governments of Punjab, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Gujarat also invited the Tatas to relocate the Nano plant in their states.

Tata circles reportedly said the "prime enablers" in rolling out Nano from Pantnagar are the huge tax incentives the state offers. This may help Tata maintain its price of Rs.1 lakh. The Uttarakhand government offers 100% excise duty exemption for 10 years, 100% exemption from corporate I-T for the first five years and 30% exemption in the next five years.

Meanwhile, the report said Uttarakhand Industrial Development Principal Secretary, P.C.Sharma told that Pantnagar plant has the requisite space to manufacture Nano. He also hinted on offering about 100 acres of land to the company. Issues like lease rental, labour and environmental concerns are expected to be discussed with the company.

Nestle to invest Rs 600 crore in India next year

Our Bureau


New Delhi, Sept. 26 Nestle India Ltd unveiled its capital expenditure of Rs 600 crore in 2009, which is double the Rs 300 crore that it is investing in the current year.

“The investment would go in new research and development, advertising and capacity building,” the company Chairman and Managing Director, Mr Martial Rolland, said while addressing a press conference here on Friday.

The Nestle International Chairman, Mr Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, who is leading a high-powered delegation of the company’s board to India, reiterated the FMCG major’s intention to “reinvest and expand” here.

“There is no envelope or limit. In the years to come, there will be no limit to our investments in India and we are willing to invest as much as is strategically and economically sound. The board has assured all financial resources; whatever Nestle India needs to continue to serve the consumer,” he said and pointed out that that the country is one of the fastest growing markets for the company worldwide. Nestle’s sales in India grew by 25 per cent in the first half of 2008 with the country contributing 1.5 per cent of its global turnover.

Commenting on the Indian growth story, the CEO of the Swiss food major, Mr Paul Bulcke, who accompanied the Chairman, said, “Developing countries are developing. For many, many years, it was just a classification, rather than dynamic.”

However, now, the developing markets account for a third of Nestle’s business, which is expected to grow to 40-45 per cent. In 10 years, Nestle is expecting a billion new consumers for its products which range from coffee, dairy to processed food and confectionary.

Nestle’s USP has been not just designing products for this bottom of the pyramid consumers but entire strategies. For example, the company enriched its products for the Brazil markets, where anaemia is rampant. In India too, the company has set up a facility in Uttarakhand which is dedicated to developing products below Rs 10. Currently, Nestle’s top selling Maggi is manufactured there.

Mr Brabeck-Letmathe, who joined Nestle in 1968 and has worked his way to the very top becoming the Chairman of the company in 2005, pointed out that the company had been in India since 1912 and would soon celebrate a hundred years here.

Lohia Group forays into auto sector; launches e-bikes

Tata Ryerson invests Rs 50 cr to set up unit in U'khand
« Reply #57 on: February 13, 2009, 11:33:12 AM »
New Delhi, Feb 12 Tata Ryerson, a joint venture between Tata Steel and US-based Ryerson, today said it has set up a steel service centre in Uttarakhand at an investment of Rs 50 crore to cater to the need of auto firms.

"We ( Tata Ryerson) followed our valued customers in Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) and set up a steel service centre capable (of) serving commercial vehicles, two-wheelers, tractors and appliance industry," Tata Ryerson Chairman Frank Munoz said in a statement.

The unit would process high grade cold-rolled steel of both coated and uncoated variety as well as hot-rolled pickled and oiled coils suitable for auto applications, it said.

The company's 9th service centre would include"a wide slitting line and two cut to length lines"to take care of service needs of Original Equipment Manufacturers like Tata Motors, Bajaj Auto, Ashok Leyland and Mahindra Tractors, it said.

Explaining the rationale behind setting up the unit in Pantnagar, Tata Ryerson Managing Director Sandipan Chakravortty said," Northern India contributes close to 45 per cent of the total volume of automobile production in the country and has a thriving auto component industry,"he added.

Tatas get more sops from Uttarakhand
« Reply #58 on: March 06, 2009, 01:19:35 PM »
The state government has allotted 1,000 acres of land at cheap rates for the automobile maker. The Nano is to be made here (the main plant is in Gujarat), in addition to mini-trucks, for now. Around 60-70 ancillary units have set up their facilities here.

The government has now decided to allow Tata to sub-lease the allotted land to its vendors. In addition, the lease rent is to be slashed.

“We are ready to give Tata Motors the necessary permission,” said a very senior officer in the state government. A high-level meeting between government and Tata officials was held this week.

Tata had asked for both concessions, they wanted to retain the power of sub-lease ownership with themselves, said the senior officer.

As for the lease rent, which was only Rs 5 a sq metre, it is to be slashed to just Rs 1 a sq metre. This will cost the state yearly revenue loss of Rs 1.5 crore.

M&M opts for Haridwar as second base for Bolero
« Reply #59 on: April 15, 2009, 06:13:51 PM »
Mumbai, April 14 - Buoyed by the success of the Bolero, Mahindra & Mahindra has begun using its new Haridwar plant in Uttarakhand as the second production base for this utility-vehicle along with Nashik.

“For the moment, there are only small numbers of the Bolero being generated at Haridwar which is useful from the viewpoint of servicing customers in the northern region,” top sources told Business Line.

The bulk of the production, they added, will continue at Nashik, which is also home to the Scorpio and Xylo. The Logan sedan, under the Mahindra-Renault umbrella, rolls out of another assembly line in this plant.
