Maruti Suzuki India said on Saturday that it is expecting a detrimental impact on production at its two plants in Haryana and parent Suzuki's Gujarat factory next month due to the less availability of electronic components owing to the global semiconductor shortage.

Stating the situation as dynamic, Maruti Suzuki noted that the total production volume across both factories in Haryana could be around 85 per cent of normal roll-out in November, mentioned a PTI report. “Owing to a supply constraint of electronic components due to the semiconductor shortage situation, the company is expecting an adverse impact on vehicle production in the month of November’21 in both Haryana and its contract manufacturing company, Suzuki Motor Gujarat Pvt Ltd (SMG)," said the automaker in a regulatory filing.
