The country’s largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki India today said production at its Manesar facility continues to be completely stopped as the workers’ strike at the plant entered its seventh day.
“The situation is the same as yesterday,” a company spokesperson told PTI.
Around 2,000 workers at the plant have been on strike since Saturday, resulting in a production loss of about 5,400 units till yesterday. The value of the loss is estimated to be around Rs 270 crore.
The strike at the plant is now threatening to spread to the Gurgaon-Manesar belt, with a panel of workers of various firms in the region warning of a similar stir if the demands of their agitating colleagues at India’s largest car-maker are not met.
The Manesar plant rolls out about 1,200 units every day in two shifts.
The factory produces hatchbacks Swift and A-Star and sedans DZiRE and SX4.
The company’s scrip was trading at Rs 1,198.80 in the morning on the Bombay Stock Exchange, down 1.52 per cent.
