MUMBAI, India, June 24, 2011 -


“Mahindra strongly advocates that the Maharashtra Govt. should
keep their part of the commitment on the incentives offered that is
conducive to industry. This is especially relevant since we make
long-term investments based on commitments made by the State and on
the premise that there will not be a policy change which will
adversely affect our business plans. Such reversal in policies not
only upsets the plans that the investing companies have put in
place, it will also severely impact all new investments in the
state by existing and new potential manufacturing companies.

On the issue of Octroi refund owed to Mahindra by the Nashik
Municipal Council, we strongly suggest that the state government
intervenes as our agreement was with the government and not with
any local body.” said Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive &
farm Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.
