But this did not happen and the company has also laid off all the Indian employees, leaving the project of about Rs 8000 crore in the middle. Let us now understand this issue in detail.
What are the main reasons?
Chinese car company Great Wall Motors entered India two years ago and its good glimpse was also seen at Auto Expo 2020. The company started the process of acquiring General Motors’ manufacturing plant in Telgaon, Pune, but two years ago there was a fierce skirmish between the soldiers of the two countries on the Indo-China border in Ladakh and then there was a lot of tension between New Delhi and Beijing. Controversy started. It is believed that after the dispute between India and China, the situation started deteriorating and then the process of acquisition of MG plant by Great Wall Motors was also affected. During the last 2.5 years, GWM renewed its term sheet 6 times, but it could not get the approval of the Ministry of Home Affairs. After all, Great Wall Motors said goodbye to the Indian market by making a loss of thousands of crores.
