An official from the company said, “Maruti produces around 5,000 cars each days and the shutdown is part of the regular exercise to maintain its production machines and lines across its multiple factories. Maruti posted flat sales with 1.69 lakh units sold in the first two months of the current fiscal.”

The temporary production halt gives ample time for the manufacturer to align its manufacturing strategies especially at a time when major car-makers in the country have been facing with similar situation of poor sales and piling of inventory at their plants.
