Tata-JTP in big trouble; layoffs happening

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!

It is reported that the Tata Motors-Jayem joint venture, JTSV (JT Special Vehicles) has been dissolved. It has also been reported that JTP models of Tiago and Tigor have sold out and the last remaining stocks are from the July / August 2019 lot. It is said that the engine powering the JTP twins is not BS6 ready.

A tweet by Gaurav Sharma, who was in the company's marketing department, also mentions that 25 employees have been laid off. The tweet has since been deleted.

In March 2017, both companies set up JTSV with a 50:50 partnership. In October 2018, they launched the JTP twins.

Aftermath - Those employees be it hardworking, lenient, average or tag them anything, one thing no one can claim is that they didn't do their duties or that they were not officially a part of dream for this pretentious company. They were forcefully thrown out of the project and not just that no compensation of any sort or if I may say so no job in Tata for now and you are relieved - leaving them high and dry which makes me very saddened about what happened to the corporate culture or any ethical behaviour for that matter.
