Gadkari pleads to Tata Group to bring Airbus to Nagpur

Amid the ongoing war of words between the ruling and opposition parties in Maharashtra over the loss of the Tata-Airbus project to Gujarat, a letter written in early October by the union minister Nitin Gadkari to Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekaran has come to light, in which Gadkari made a strong plea to bring the Tata-Airbus defence transport aircraft manufacturing plant to Nagpur.

“Both SEZ and non-SEZ land is available in MIHAN (Multi-Modal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur) for the Tata-Airbus and various other projects of the Tata Group. There is plenty of space available here for setting up large warehouses for various groups of industries, including for Tata Airlines and other airlines,” Gadkari wrote.

The Union minister said that the Tata Airbus project could be helpful for the expansion of the Tata Group’s other projects in Nagpur.

“Air India has its maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) for its aircraft in MIHAN. Tata Group may also set up MROs in MIHAN looking at future business expansion opportunities,” said Gadkari.

He further said, “Tata Group companies comprising Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Tata Consumer Product Ltd, Voltas Ltd, Titan Industry want to be connected in 350 districts of six states. The area has good road facilities and there is availability of ample manpower.”
