Notes to Accounts Year End : Mar '16
1.  Capital work-in-progress as at March 31, 2014 included building
 under construction at Singur in West Bengal of Rs.309.88 crores for the
 purposes of manufacturing automobiles. In October 2008, the Company
 moved the Nano project from Singur in West Bengal to Sanand in Gujarat.
 In June 2011, the newly elected Government of West Bengal (State
 Government) enacted a law cancelling the land lease agreement at
 Singur, and took over possession of the land. The Company challenged
 the constitutional validity of the law. In June 2012, the Calcutta High
 Court declared the law unconstitutional and restored Company''s rights
 under the land lease agreement. The State Government fi led an appeal
 in the Supreme Court of India in August 2012, which is pending
 disposal. Though the Company continues to rigorously press its rights,
 contentions and claims in the matter, the Company has been advised that
 the time it may take in disposal of the appeal is uncertain. The
 Company has also been advised that it has a good case and can strongly
 defend the appeal, but the questions that arise are issues of
 constitutional law and thus the result of the appeal cannot be
 predicted. In these circumstances, in view of the uncertainty on the
 timing of resolution, following the course of prudence, the management
 has during the year ended March 31, 2015, made a provision for carrying
 capital cost of buildings at Singur amounting to Rs.309.88 crores
 included under the head works operations and other expenses excluding
 other assets (electrical installations etc.) and expenses written off /
 provided in earlier years, security expenses, lease rent and claim for
 interest on the whole amount (including Rs.309.88 crores). The Company
 shall however continue to pursue the case and assert its rights and its
 claims in the Courts.
