Further reiterating its commitment towards the Indian market, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (MSIL) has decided to develop a world-class research and development complex in the country. The Rs. 1,000-crore complex, the sole such facility by Suzuki Motor Corporation outside Japan, would come up at Rohtak in Haryana and house an R&D centre for passenger cars, including India’s first state-of-the-art test track with a proving ground, wind tunnel and crash facility. The Haryana Government had already handed over 700 acres to MSIL, out of which 100 acres would house the suppliers’ park where MSIL’s vendor partners would bring in further investment. While the development of the allotted land and construction of the test tracks would be completed by 2012, the overall R&D facilities would be completed by 2015.
