    Loss for Haryana, and a gain for Gujarat, partly true. Gain for Gujarat, absolutely, loss for Haryana, yes, but not entirely. (http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...ew-333m-diesel-plant/articleshow/12393663.cms)

    The Hooda government tried pretty much everything to not let them leave Haryana, but it seems the management was clear on Gujarat.

    2 million annual car production facility means the motive of using India as a hub for export of a lot more models, and in some big numbers, so relocating to a state touching the sea made a sane choice. In the larger perspective if we look at it, the loss has been of other sea touching states, and which boast of other auto manufacturers, because those are with whom Gujarat was competing.

    Gurgaon, as highlighted in the article, has its problems. It indeed has galloped at a very brisk pace to become a corporate and a residential city, with huge amounts of traffic, and not much of a manufacturing hub that it once was, pretty much the same happened with Faridabad. You can get stuck on the highway late nights for hours at times, not such a good thing for logistics.

    Haryana does need to start looking at adjoining towns to move the manufacturing, a little further away from Delhi, unlike Gurgaon and Faridabad, and for the same, create infrastructure at a brisk pace. More importantly, Delhi needs to have the new proposed outer ring road developed fast enough which then should then help bring back the manufacturing to Haryana.

    During the 2001-2006, Chennai was called detroit of Asia. Then the Bald ----er came along and destroyed that status of Chennai. hard luck TN:sad:

    Now Modi is in full swing to make his state the best of the Best :hail:. Good luck Modi and Gujarat:thumb:

    The power situation is hurting TN so bad that others are taking our cake....Can't blame them though.

    Gujarat and MH are the two biggest gainers of this whole episode.

    A few advantages that I see of moving car manufacturing to the new plant, in addition to an industry friendly government, is that the gujarat location Maruti chose is virtually equidistant from the north and south of the country. That will save shipping time and cost. The gujart ports are closer too, which will enable Suzuki export at a cost effective rate.

    I think other than what you suggested, Gujarat is also not as corrupt, and there remains the single window clearance which means very limited bureaucratic hassles.

    I* am surprised that the industry finds Gujarat conducive to its growth, while a large majority of Indian feel that Gujarat is a Tunnel of Horrors!

    I cannot understand this divergence of thought.

    Modi can be intolerant to Unions, but then none can stop workers from picketing and taking to the streets.

    Even that does not seem to be happening.

    So, what gives?

    Which is why we have good growth rates compared to the sick states of India. Any labourer who thinks he is not payed enough may feel free to find another job. As long as he is paid the minimum salaries and benefits by the various labor acts of India, they should not have a problem:mad:

    Economic times is indeed toilet newspaper

    Maruti Suzuki will not shut down car production at Gurgaon plant

    During a media interaction here on Saturday, the Company’s top management had announced plans to set up a diesel engine manufacturing plant in Gurgaon.

    One newspaper report has misinterpreted the comments and reported that Maruti Suzuki will shut down production of cars in the Gurgaon plant and shift carmaking to Gujarat.

    :rolleyes::tsk::mad:

    The Company denies this report.

    Maruti Suzuki would like to reiterate that:

    1. The Company has no plan whatsoever to stop production of cars in the Gurgaon plant. Car making operations at the Gurgaon plant will continue.

    2. The Company will reduce the number of cars produced at Gurgaon plant and make available space for expanding the engine manufacturing capacity, including a new diesel engine plant.

    3. The Company will continue to increase production at Manesar, where a third plant with an annual capacity of 2.50 lakh units is coming up. Once the capacity in Manesar is fully utilized, the Company plans to set up a new facility in Gujarat.

    4. Together, the facilities at all three locations – Gurgaon, Manesar and Gujarat - will be used by the Company to manufacture vehicles to meet market demand.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
