As a consequence, Maruti Suzuki India Limited will have to temporarily suspend the manufacture of cars at its facilities in Manesar and Gurgaon, starting second half Monday (May 30). Subros Limited and Maruti Suzuki are jointly assessing the extent of damage to essential equipment. We are also examining the options available to start supply of components from other facilities. Production will resume as soon as components become available.”
