Tyre maker TVS Srichakra Ltd on Tuesday announced a Rs 1,000 crore investment over a period of three years to ramp up its manufacturing capacity. The capital expenditure of Rs 1,000 crore will be used to ramp up manufacturing at its Madurai and Pantnagar plants, the company said in a statement 'This investment is planned to be made over a three-year period.
