Default Confirmed - Land Rover to setup production facility in India

Quote:

According to sources speaking with InsideLine, Tata purchased a 450-acre swath of land in Gurgaon, outside of New Delhi, for the explicit purpose of building Land Rovers. That's going to be a tough pill to swallow for LR's labor unions, which supported the sale of the both companies last year after Tata became the top bidder.

Gurgaon? Paying crazy price of 5-6cr per acre driven up by real estate players? Does not seem likely.

if tata buy's JLR, they should start selling the prv. gen discovery here for,. say about 15 lakhs with a 2.2 crdi dicor engine, it will sell like hot cakes.. i may be wrong but that's my thinking

if mitsubishi is able to sell its old gen pajero.. then i am sure tata can also do this .. just modify a little bit on the disco. and we can have a desi disco here..

what do you think folks?

I think they are also saying about 'sources'. So, how can the news be confirmed?
