Maruti Suzuki resumes production today with heavy security outside plant

India's largest auto maker, Maruti Suzuki reopens the plant today though with a limited workforce but with heavy security deployed outside the gates of the plant. The company will start the production with a workforce of just 300 workers who will produce the Swift and Dzire variants with starting from 150 vehicles a day.

The company was forced to shut operations at the factory near Gurgaon in Haryana after a senior executive was killed and several others injured in a violent labour clash on July 18. An estimated 2,500 workers were present at the time in the factory that produces the company's best-selling Swift hatchback.

Maruti executives said the company has taken unprecedented security measures - hiring former commandos of the elite National Security Guards and more than 50 armed guards from the city-based Holistic Security, which specialises in VIP security and crisis management. The company has also installed close circuit cameras to monitor the plant.

We hope Maruti Suzuki now starts the full fledge production reaching their maximum capacity of 1,500 vehicles per day.
