Amit Srivastava's article seems old:

1. Plachimada plant started functioning in January this year.

2. U. Michigan revoked its ban on Coke in April 2006.

thanks for pointing that out Vishnu.
A link regarding the UMIch reinstatement is here.
Could not find a pointer reporting restart of the Plachimada plant---Amit's article is dated August 10th, so am not sure why he did no mention it.

I do not have a link for reopening of the plant, but I saw that on news this January when I was in India.
