In a significant boost to Punjab's industrial sector, Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann recently inaugurated Sonalika Tractors' ambitious INR 1300 crore expansion project at the world's largest integrated tractor manufacturing plant in Hoshiarpur, Punjab.

Equipped with a German-engineered Kunkel Wagner high-pressure moulding line, the facility is set to enhance the quality of Sonalika's tractors, emphasising the brand's commitment to excellence and innovation.

During his visit to the existing facility, CM Mann lauded Sonalika's efficiency and its substantial contribution to Punjab's industrial landscape.
