According to a leading financial daily, M&M will invest around Rs 200 bn to set up an automotive plant and a testing facility at Cheyyar in Tamil Nadu. The process for setting up a plant was initiated in 2011 but there was a delay in allocation of land to the company. Currently also, the land to be allotted to the company is yet to be fully acquired. M&M will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state government soon. The MoU is likely to be presented to the Cabinet by December end. The testing facility at Tamil Nadu will be very significant for the company as it currently does not have a testing facility in India. Therefore, it has to go to the UK, Australia or Korea to carry out testing. M&M is trading up 2.2% today.
