New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India may start operations of the second plant in the Manesar unit within next two days. The company's engineers are working round the clock to bring the second plant on stream. The second plant at Manesar has been set up with an investment of nearly Rs 1,700 crore

This will advance commissioning by almost a month, for the second plant which was planned to be commissioned by late September. The existing first plant is currently facing a labour dispute, following allegations of "sabotage" and deliberate quality compromise on cars produced last week. The workers are being allowed to enter the plant only after signing a 'good conduct bond'.

Maruti Suzuki will hire contract workers to run its operations due to the ongoing stalemate. Since the company is short of manpower at this stage, starting operations at this second plant will be a shot in the arm for the company.

Maruti Suzuki further strengthened the production activities at the Manesar plant as it hired more skilled and experienced people yesterday. A fresh batch of 180 experienced and ITI trained workers joined the production activities this morning. Yesterday, the company had brought in 120 ITI trained workers to the Manesar facility. It has already deployed 50 engineers from the company's Gurgaon plant and around 290 supervisors for production activities at the plant. The company now has 680 trained and experienced people available for production.

All these people are being deployed to start and scale up production at the plant. The company will continue the recruitment drive for trained workers to normalise production in coming days.
