India's largest car manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki, has resumed production on Monday morning at its Gurgaon and Manesar plant, following the maintenance closure from June 6 to June 11, 2016.
According to Maruti, the maintenance closure had to be advanced by three weeks due to a fire incident thattook place at Subros' Manesar plant on May 29, after which the supply of car AC componentswas temporarily halted.
The fire at Subros led the carmaker to shut down itsproduction for a couple of days initially but also ended up advancing itsmaintenance closure. On an average, Maruti produces around 5,000 cars a day from its plants. The unscheduled closure could reflect in the company's June sales figures.
