The long running dispute between the West Bengal state government and Tata Motor over the land of Singur, took a new turn when Tata Motors submitted a statement to Justice stating the company was forced to leave the land at a point when majority of the manufacturing was completed.

Following the protests from the farmers and the law and order situation raised by the state government, the motor company shifted its manufacturing plant to Gujarat. The manufacturing plant in West Bengal was set for the production of Nano car. The company, besides completing 90% of its manufacturing of the car, had also established office buildings when it was forced to shift the entire plant.

The state government, which took over the land under Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act 2011, accused the company of abandoning the project area.
