Tata Nano Factory Construction Put On Indefinite Hold Escalating material costs aren't the only thing standing in the way of the $2,500 Tata Nano . Increasingly violent protests from farmers surrounding the rising Nano factory have forced Tata to put an indefinite hold on the progress. The farmers' beef comes from their assertion they were unfairly compensated for their land when Tata moved into the area of West Bengal. At this point, Tata is considering all options, including picking everything up and moving. This, of course, would be an expensive prospect, driving costs up on the microcar. At this point, we don't care what it takes, but we need a Nano stat, complete with mid-mounted Hayabusa mill. [CTVNews ]
