India's Tata Motors ready to halt one plant if virus concerns deepen

NEW DELHI, March 20 (Reuters) - India’s Tata Motors said on Friday it was rapidly scaling down activities at its car manufacturing plant in the western state of Maharashtra and was prepared for its closure if coronavirus concerns deepened.

The move by Tata Motors, which owns the British luxury brands Jaguar and Land Rover, comes as the state records the highest number of confirmed cases in India
