India's Tata Motor company says it has been offered another
site for its factory to produce the world's cheapest car.
Company officials say they have been offered 400 hectares to set up the Nano
plant in Karnataka state.
A Tata spokesman said they are considering the offer but that no decision has
been made on whether it will abandon its nearly completed plant in West Bengal
The motor company has not been able to finish the project due to deadly
protests by the state's opposition, which says that local villagers were
unfairly compensated for their land.
Efforts to resolve the standoff have failed, with protesters recently rejecting
a government offer to return 30 hectares of land.
The Tata plant was set to manufacture what is being called the world's cheapest
car -- the "Nano."
