Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) and General Motors (GM) have entered into a term sheet agreement, which will see the acquisition of GM India's plant in Talegaon, Maharashtra. Central to the term sheet is the proposed acquisition of land and buildings as well as machinery and equipment used for manufacturing purposes at General Motors India's Talegaon plant. The agreement, which covers the terms and conditions of a proposed investment, is said to be considered valid for a stipulated time frame, as the final sale agreement is expected to be signed once all the legal clearances from relevant authorities, including settlement with the Talegaon plant workers, are obtained.
