The Maharashtra government has put three memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with Chinese companies worth Rs 5,000 crore on hold following the Galwan Valley clash, sources told CNBC-TV18.

The decision came after the central government sought details about Chinese investments as well as import-export trade from state governments.

The three MoUs that have been put on hold are with Great Wall Motors (worth Rs 3,700 crore), PMI Electro Mobility Solutions (Rs 1,000 crore) and Hengli (Rs 250 crore). They were signed during the Magnetic Maharashtra 2.0 initiative undertaken recently. All the three Chinese firms were to invest in Maharashtra's Talegaon district.
