Khattar conveyed that this will help the auto major to increase the production that will boost the automobile sector. Along with this, the automaker has been given state goods and services tax (SGST) reimbursement for 15 years by the government. Building another factory seems a lucrative prospect that will help the automaker to push its production to its desired goals.

However, Maruti Suzuki India, at the start of the month, had conveyed that it is expecting a negative impact on the production at its two plants located in Haryana and the parent Suzuki factory in Gujarat due to scarcity of electronic components because of the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. The automaker stated the situation as dynamic as it observed that the total production volume across both factories in Haryana could be around 85 per cent of the normal roll-out in November.

October too didn't go very well for the auto major as its sales in the domestic market didn't sparkle as per the company's expectation. In its second-quarter announcement, Maruti Suzuki officials shared that though the demands remain satisfactory the production continues to suffer due to the chip crisis. It sold about 48,690 units in the domestic market compared to the 95,067 units sold in October last year.
