Mamata keen to start a rail coach factory in Singur

Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, while flagging off the new Singur-Howrah 'Andolan' suburban train on Sunday said that her ministry was ready to set a rail coach factory at Singur, if the land earlier acquired by the Tatas to set up 'Nano' factory was made available.

She also said she wanted 600 acres of land for the proposed rail coach factory, out of the 1000 acres acquired for the small car project and 400 acres can be returned to the farmers.
