Protests stopped at Tata Nano plant, future still uncertain

Questions about the future of the Tata Nano - questions that flared up when the plant that was to build the world's cheapest car was put under siege recently - are starting to be answered, but only just. The protest at the plant has now ended, the BBC reports, and the fallout is now beginning.

Opposition groups - which were protesting the way that land for the plant's expansion was acquired by the local government - stopped their protest after the government promised to return some of that land. But, the work stoppage at the plant has not yet ended because Tata Motors is "distressed at the limited clarity on the outcome of the discussions between the State Government of West Bengal and the representatives of the agitators in Singur," according to a company spokesman who talked to the BBC. Even though the Nano plant would still have land to grow under the expected new deal, whether the company moves Nano production to another part of India is still unknown.
