"Still working through a lot of challenges with the government," Musk tweeted on January 13 replying to a Twitter user who asked about an update on Tesla's India business plan.

"Hey Elon, I am the Industry & Commerce Minister of Telangana state in India. Will be happy to partner Tesla in working through the challenges to set shop in India/Telangana. Our state is a champion in sustainability initiatives and a top notch business destination in India," Rama Rao said replying to Elon Musk tweet.
