A agreement will be signed between Tata Motors and Gujarat Government this evening for setting up of the Nano project in Sanand, a state government official said.
"Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata will arrive in the city around 1530 hours along with Tata Motors's Managing Director Ravi Kant and meet the Chief Minister. They will sign the Memorandum of Understanding around 1730 hours in the evening," Information Commissioner Bhagyes Jha said.
The project will be set up in Sanand, 30 kms from the city, on the land of Anand Agriculture University (AAU). The AAU had 2,220 acres of land at the site, which has been to the Tata Motors, officials said.
The Tatas after exiting from Singur had explored many destinations in different states and has finally chosen Sanand.
The land of Sanand, which has been offered to Tatas, is considered to be ideal for the project as it is just a few kms form Ahmedabad and is on National Highway.
