Bajaj Auto to set up auto plant near the Mundra port in Gujarat

According to Business Standard report, Bajaj Auto is planning to set up its fourth and largest five million unit per annum plant near the Mundra port in Gujarat with an initial investment of more than Rs 1,000 crore. The plant will also manufacture the long-awaited passenger car the company is developing with Nissan-Renault.

The plant will export at least 60 per cent production. The company is looking for 400-500 acres, including for vendors. A team led by Managing Director Rajiv Bajaj will visit Gujarat towards the end of the month for talks with the officials there.

    Dharmesh,

    Even if Rahuj Bajaj may be an enemy of Narendra Modi, we should welcome the investment he is making in Gujarat. Manufacturing plans give employement to the low educated labor, and is a great way to reduce the poverty. We must set aside the political point of views and help Bajaj like any other industrialist in setting up the plant.

    Well said WelcomeManufacturing.

    Dharmesh,

    There are no friends or foes in business and politics.

    Bajaj Group is facing lot of problems from Maharasthra Government regarding sales tax issues. Google a bit and you will find out more details. They want to locate their 4th plant in Gujarat as they want to benefit from business friendly policies, better infrastructure, hassle-free working environment and proximity to ports. What’s wrong in that?

    We should welcome Bajaj Group to Gujarat with open hands if they want to setup a plant in our state. Every single resident of the state should do his bit to ensure that their business plans are successful. Needless to say that ultimately the state and its residents are also going to benefit because of better employment and business opportunities.

    One more thing, will appreciate if you could stop using capital letters when posting your comments.

    We need to forget 2002 and move on. Most of the people in the state have actually moved on except some pseudo-intellectual media people and good-for-nothing opposition leaders. Have you moved on or u still live in 2002?

    I live in the present moment, with my eyes on 2020 and 2030, when I hope our state will be even more VIBRANT, and perhaps inching closer towards becoming the first DEVELOPED STATE of India.
