Maruti Suzuki resumes production at Haryana plants

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Automobile major Maruti Suzuki on Tuesday announced that it has resumed production at its facilities in Gurgaon and Manesar.

The company had to temporarily suspend manufacturing of vehicles at its flagship facilities in Manesar and Gurgaon on Saturday, due to the transport and other disruption caused by the Jat community’s quota agitation.

“Maruti Suzuki India has resumed production of vehicles at its facilities in Gurgaon and Manesar, starting Tuesday, February 23 (second half). The supply of components has started gradually,” the company said in a regulatory filing with the BSE.

“The company had to suspend operations at its facilities from Saturday, February 20 (second half), as supply of certain components was disrupted due to the agitation in Haryana.”

Currently, the combined output of Maruti Suzuki from Manesar and Gurgaon plants is about 5,000 vehicles per day.

Haryana’s Jat community, wanting affirmative action, had started a state-wide agitation.

The protests and violence accompanying them adversely impacted various companies’ ability to get supplies, or ship out their merchandises.

The Jat community’s quota agitation even crippled rail and road transport to and from the national capital to Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan.
