Minister says they are examining the legal implications in Tata Motors-WB government pact.

New Delhi, May 27 -- Tata Motors had been involved in some tussle over the Tata Nano project in Singur which ultimately left to the state of Gujarat. Now it has been reported that though it was announced that the government would make public the agreement between the West Bengal government and Tata for its Nano project at Singur, Industry minister Partha Chatterjee has stated that some more time was required to study the legal implications.

The reports quoted him as saying ``We are examining the legal issues. There are many parties involved, not only the Tatas. There are 54 vendors which exist on paper. More time is needed to study and to examine the legal implications." He said it was fortunate that Anindya Mitra, tipped to be the new advocate general by the present government, was familiar with the issue.

It was mentioned in the reports that the Calcutta High Court in September, 2008 had restrained the WBIDC from making the agreement public on a petition moved by the Tatas. Chatterjee said: "Mamata Banerjee will not do anything which will complicate matters further". He failed to give a timeline by when the agreement would be made public. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had stated that the agreement between the Tatas and the erstwhile Left Front government would be made public soon.
