A large number of people visited the Tata Motors showroom to enquire about the bookings of the car.

In Mumbai, many buyers visited Tata Motors showrooms to enquire about the Nano.

"Nano looks like a good car. I will definitely buy it. I think Nano should get good response from the people," said Gopal Patwardhan, a cusomer.

The Nano made a much-trumpeted debut in January 2008 and was due to go on sale late last year, but its arrival was delayed by a dispute over the land where a purpose-built facility was to be located.

The Nano was formally launched by Tata Motors Chairman Ratan Tata on March 23 and has been available for viewing in showrooms around the country from April 1. (ANI)
