Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

The investment may be boosted to INR 4,000 crore, if required.

Mahindra & Mahindra has signed an MoU with the Tamil Nadu government, yesterday, as per which the automaker has chalked out an investment plan of INR 2,000 crore in the state, over a five-year period. If needed, the company is ready to extend the investment to INR 4,000 crore in the state, by 2022, a decision that will be made over the coming years.
