Abandoned Tata Nanos
Left high and dry are the skeletons of the Tata Nano. The CPI (M) led front government made use of the 1894 Land Acquisition Act to take over the 997 acres of farmland for the plant. Many of the farmers and activists opposed it and it went to become a national rage ultimately to the closure of the factory.
The now abandoned Nano Singur plant is in use, a la now a shelter for the cattle in the vicinity. Development of the area has not progressed and it is a place where there is no utilisation of the infrastructure or the land.

According to the Trinamool leader and MLA who was at the forefront of the movement says the matter is still with the court and a third party out-of-court settlement can sort out the matter. However, there has been no initiative from any of the party's involved in the matter, that is the industrialists and the state.
Waste Of Infrastructure And Money
What could have been a boon to many of the people living in and around the land stands abandoned and a waste of infrastructure. A lot of them believe there still life in the plant if there is a amicable solution to the stand off.
Cobwebs In Employment
Many of the youths who have been unemployed could be working in this plant and lived a better a lifestyle, however, this infrastructure is going waste.
Inside The Tata Nano Singur Factory
The farmlands of Singur were good yielding which could produce nearly three crops a year. Currently, there is no factory or the farmlands. Small farmers who had given up the land are still waiting for their lands to be returned.
The factory or the farmland would have yielded results in many of the lives. Tata left the place eight years ago which is now a preferred zone for cattle.
Decay Of Infrastructure
As time passes by, the world class infrastructure of Tata lies wasted which could have brought employment to many.
Down The Drain
A lot of money was pumped into the India's first cheapest car in the world and vision of the future by the behemoth Tata Motors. Now it's down the drain and there seems to be no solution in the near future.
Massive Infrastructure - Now A Sore To The Eyes
The present condition of the plant is still a great infrastructure and the present government can make use it to provide the land back the small farmers and the plant can be restarted to provide employment to the current generation.
