Tata Motors' chairman Ratan Tata will meet West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadev Bhattacharjee in Kolkata on Friday to discuss the fate of Nano project in the state, which is in limbo.
Government sources said that the meeting would take place at Writers' Buildings in the afternoon.
The proposed meeting, sources said, would try to find a solution to the impasse, which has led to suspension of work at the Nano project at Singur due to political reasons since August 29.
While the state government has assured Tata that all help would be extended for resumption of work at Singur, Tatas have said that it was not possible for Tata Motors to work under police protection.
Tata has also said that they would be forced to shift the Nano project from Singur if normalcy was not restored at the project area.
With the prospects of Nano rolling out from Singur now becoming bleak, Bhattacharjee had written to Tata asking him not to pull out and expressed his desire for a meeting on the issue.
