Continuing its site-hunt for the Nano car project, a team of Tata executives inspected a 1,200 acre land at Wargal in Medak district, about 45 kms from Hyderabad.

Medak District Collector Peeyush Kumar took the team around the site and explained its strategic location and suitability for the small-car plant.

The collector said 650 acres could be handed over to Tata immediately, while the remaining made available at a later stage.

Talking to PTI over phone from Medak, Kumar said all the land was assigned and it has to be recovered from illegal occupants.

The Tata team, led by a senior executive, inquired about the availability of water, power and road connectivity.

Kumar told them that the proposed site was well connected to 'Hyderabad-Karimnagar Rajeev Rahadari,' which was being expanded into a four-lane highway.

Moreover, the site is also close to Hyderabad than other locations suggested by the state government authorities.

The Tata team reportedly did not speak anything either for or against the location and told the officials that they would get back to them after Tata management deliberated upon various options.

The Tata Nano car project is being vigorously wooed by Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat as its top officials are carrying out site inspections after the group pulled out of West Bengal, following opposition there.
