Suzuki Motorcycles to get special package of incentives from Haryana government
Suzuki Motorcycles will be offered with a special incentive package from the Haryana government for setting up a new facility in IMT Kharkhoda in Sonipat district. The incentive package, which is worth ₹67.62 crore, was approved and awarded by Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Haryana on Friday. The incentive package has been provided for Suzuki Motorcycles to create more jobs in the region. The new facility is expected to create employment for around 2,000 people in the state.
While awarding the incentive package, Khattar said that the new Suzuki Motorcycles facility will help to make the state's auto manufacturing ecosystem stronger. Haryana is already home to some of the biggest auto manufacturers in India, which also include the largest car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki India Limited.
The new Suzuki Motorcycles facility will be set up in the state at an investment of ₹2,000 crore. The facility, spread across 100 acres of land in Kharkhoda in Sonipat, was recently approved after the state government allotted the land to the two-wheeler manufacturer in May this year. The facility is strategically located at the Industrial Model Township in Kharkhoda on the Delhi-Haryana border adjoining the western peripheral Expressway and State Highway-18. Due to its proximity to Delhi and connectivity with Gurugram, IMT Kharkhoda is expected to be the next big hub for industrial development in the state.
The new Suzuki Motorcycles plant in Sonipat will be operational as its second facility in the state besides the existing one at Kherki Daula in Gurugram. The facility has an annual production capacity of 11 lakh two-wheelers and has created jobs for more than 3500 people in the state. IMT Kharkhoda will also be home to Maruti Suzuki's third facility in Haryana besides the two plants at Gurugram and Manesar. Maruti's third plant at IMT Kharkhoda is spread across 800 acres.
