Sir, a slight correction here, Though the authorized capacity of Personnel was 4696 however, as per the official Permission Certificate issued by Deputy Commissioner Gurgaon, the permission was granted for only 600 workers.

Maruti has not revealed as to exactly how many cars were lying unsold. But the number is expected to be in the region of 1,500 cars. Maruti Suzuki was one of the first brands in the country to commence a rapid transition to BS6 emission norms. In the process, Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has ditched all its diesel powertrains for a petrol-only portfolio. For instance, the previous diesel-only Vitara Brezza subcompact crossover comes only in a 1.5 petrol avatar now.

Apart from Maruti Suzuki, several automakers operating in the country are expected to share their losses on BS4 units. With online sales platforms becoming part of the ‘new normals’, the Indian automotive industry is heading to a new direction — read more details.
