The country’s largest automaker, Maruti Suzuki India Limited will be commencing the production operations at its plant in Manesar after about a one month production halt following the violence outbreak emerging from the labour unrest. Since the company has prioritised the security of the employees by ensuring safe working environment, only partial production operations will be resumed on the coming Tuesday.

As per a source, the company has conducted majority of assessments and production operations can take a partial swing in the next week. However, the company spokesperson has refused to provide any confirmation.

After the violent turbulence that hit the Manesar facility on 18th July, the company is required to delicately handle the labour issue at a gradual pace. So initially, the car maker will gear up the production operations in the automated divisions only limiting the involvement of workers.

In a bid to avoid the history to repeat itself, Maruti Suzuki has joined hands with the district administration to ramp up the security of the facility.

Lately, the company’s Chief Operating Officer (Administration), Mr. S Y Siddiqui had confirmed, "We may be able to complete the total assessment of the situation at the Manesar plant by Friday and expect a clear picture to emerge regarding the reopening of the plant by then."

After a long pause, the automaker will be soon able to cover up for the currently faced shortfall in the production of its bestselling Swift range. At present, many automakers have forayed and are foraying into the entry level sedan segment to capture the market share held by Swift Dzire sedan.
