Another article from the Financial Times reported by IBN:

Bangalore: Ford Motor Co plans to invest $1 billion to build a factory in Gujarat to gain a greater share of one of the fastest-growing car markets, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.
The US automaker plans to announce its plans on Thursday, according to the report, which cited Ford's head of Asia-Pacific and Africa Joe Hinrichs.
The factory in Gujarat, expected to be up and running by 2014, will employ 5,000 people and is expected to have an initial annual capacity of 240,000 vehicles, the newspaper reported.

Ford's largest single investment in India follows the success of its India-built Figo model, which helped the group nearly triple its sales last year, the FT reported.
Hinrichs was quoted as saying that Gujarat had been selected over other states for its pro-business reputation and geographical location and ports from which to export cars to other emerging markets.
Ford's shares closed down 4.3 per cent at $12.37 on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange.

Good that industries are being setup across India. One of my relative is setting up a factory in Baroda. Looks like the investment climate in Gujarat is really good.

Its silly of Alagiri to write to union govt. They have been drawing industries and central money by virtue of their support all these days.

Note from Mod : News confirmed. New Thread created at this link (Ford says “Namaste Gujarat"! Announces Manufacturing and Engine plant in GJ). Please continue the discussion over on the new thread
