    Singur project

    Singur was the area selected by the TATAs for there Nano car plant. But unfortunately due to some political causes this was discontinued. This location of Singur was selected by the company among the six different sites. This project of the Tatas faced massive opposition by the farmers and some political leaders while some supported it as in their views it was good for the economy of Bengal. On 23rd September the Tatas decided to leave Singur land which was announced by Ratan Tata in a press conference at Kolkata. Now about 650 acres of land is left over and no such utility can be derived out of that. It cant be used for farming too. If this industry could settle in our Bengal then it would have affected the economy very much. All the near by places could have developed too. The Tatas decided to produce there $2500 car Nano which was estimated to be the cheapest car in the Indian market. But due to a huge loss suffered by the Tatas the car's price too cannot be kept at that level. This land, however is an offset to our Bengal's economy, now farming is also not possible here and after this huge political disturbance any great industrialist will think thrice before setting up an industry at Bengal. However, agriculture is also necessary for Bengal's economy. Converting an agricultural land to industrial land carries lots of negative effects too. But once it is converted and the land is processed agriculture becomes impossible there. Nothing can bring back the fertility of that land.

    Ankit thanks for sharing the hopeless case of Singur. This place was in the news last year and that has been faded away once the Tata car project shifted to Gujarat. Now you say 650 acres of land is lying vacant without any development and that is very bad. Why politicians are doing these kinds of things to deny people their right.

    Yes Mr K Mohan, you got me correct. This piece of land should not lie vacant without any development. 650 acres is not a small one. There should be some industries on it. And specially if any big industrial groups enters into west bengal it will be highly beneficial for the state. If the land will be properly utilized it will be advantageous to us as it will bring up many jobs too.
