- The company is worried about the new policy of the Haryana government.
- According to the policy, 75% of the employment will have to be given to the local people.
The country’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki has said that it is not taking any of its investment and employment from Haryana to Gujarat. Also, it will invest Rs 18,000 crore on the new plant. Through this, it will be able to make 7.50 to 10 lakh cars annually at the plant in Haryana.
Surjewala had pulled up the Haryana government
In fact, Congress General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala had pulled up the Haryana government for shifting the plant of Maruti Suzuki. Responding to this, the company’s chairman R.C. Bhargava said that Maruti is neither taking any of its investment nor any employment from Haryana to Gujarat. The company has the highest production capacity in its plants in Haryana and Gujarat. It uses many of its models in these plants to meet the demand.
Haryana plant will continue
Bhargava said that the Haryana plant will continue to operate. It will work at full capacity. Employment will also be completely here. There will be no change in employment. He said that no production will go away from Gurugram. If its DZire model is moved elsewhere, then other models will be made here. Bhargava said that Maruti Suzuki has more than 15 models. Therefore, it has to be decided from time to time that which product will be made where and how it will be right.
Makes 1,000 cars a day
The company makes an average of 1,000 DZire cars a day. This is the third model that will be made from Gujarat. Before this, Baleno and Swift are also made from here. The company’s Haryana plant is running at full capacity. The capacity here is 15 lakh cars annually. Suzuki Motor Gujarat manufactures 7.5 lakh cars annually since the third unit was commissioned in April this year.
Green field will be in 700 to 1,000 acres
Bhargava said that this new plant can be in 700 to 1,000 acres. It will replace its old factory which is in Gurugram. However, according to the new rule of the state, the company will have to give 75% employment to the local people. He said that we are planning to invest 17 to 18 thousand crore rupees. This plan of the company is getting delayed due to Corona last year. He said that apart from Corona, we also have some additional issues which have to be resolved.
local employment policy
Bhargava said that Haryana’s policy of local employment is the key in this. We are concerned about this. We are talking with the government. He is being talked about a solution, which can make everyone happy. This issue has also been shared with the top chambers of the industry. The entire industry is worried about this rule.
