With the constant hike in prices of petrol, the largest carmaker of the country, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), declared huge discounts worth up to Rs. 50,000 on its petrol cars. These discounts are not accessible on the entire petrol line-up of the company and are restricted to certain models only.

Following the league, the auto maker offers discount of Rs. 50,000 on its A-Star and Rs. 43,000-50,000 on WagonR Petrol, Duo and CNG.

Other than these models, the carmaker is also offering goodies worth Rs. 55,000 on Estilo petrol and its CNG variant and has slashed the price of Swift petrol by Rs. 15,000. All the versions of Maruti Omni are offered with a discount of Rs. 12,000. At the same time, petrol and CNG versions of Maruti Eeco are now offered with a deduction of Rs. 15,000 on their actual costs.

Apart from this, the petrol and diesel versions of Ritz are offered with discounts of Rs. 41,000 and Rs. 20,000, respectively.
