What if, Nano had to be built in Belgaum?


Its breaking news on the business front that the Nano plant from singur will get shifted to Dharwad.


Tata Motors MD Ravi Kant met the Karnataka CM today and Tata Motors have confirmed that they are looking for alternatives to Singur to shift their Nano project.

The Karnataka Government has offered 1000 acres for the Nano car project and all “incentives and support. Tata Motors already has a manufacturing unit in Dharwad where it makes the low-floor Marco Polo buses.

Why Dharwad again? Belgaum has been a hub for automobile ancillary industry for years now and for a low cost car like Nano, integration of resources will reduce the cost. The Karnataka govt. should have thought of Belgaum and asked the Tata’s to come to Belgaum, by which there would be some industrial development and the ancillaries would have had a good time.

I think its sheer lack of interest of the local politician (or clash of interests) and the state level as well that Belgaum is always neglected.

Anyways, Nano could be made closer to us, which is also a good thought.

  1. I agree with the comments of Rahim . They are very bitterly true. The situation of Belgaum due to border dispute is like ” TRISHANKU” nither in heaven nor the eatrh ( Nither in definately in karnataka or in Maharatrra). If there was no border dispute ,the city would have been a heaven ,always unparalled.
    The only option left is to form another city called NEW BELGAUM ,(having a new Muncipal Corporation independently )in the karnatak area (Undisputed area) then there is a hope of improvement.

  2. I hope karnataka govt is not scared of loosing belgaum to maharashtra , they are avoiding belgaum for that reason may be
