New Delhi: Reporting congestion and traffic hassles, Country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India, on Friday, said that relocation of its first plant from Gurgaon to another site is 'inevitable'.
The company representatives met the Haryana government officials recently with a view to finding a new site to relocate the plant, preferably near Manesar where its second plant is located with established vendor base.
"Shifting from existing site (Gurgaon) is inevitable. There is a need to shift from there but when and how and in what manner it will happen, we cannot make any comment at this point", said MSI Chairman RC Bhargava.
He declined to share a timeline for shifting the Gurgaon plant, where the company began its India journey in 1983 by rolling out its first model - the iconic Maruti 800.
With the rapid development in Gurgaon, the company now finds its plant in the middle of a bustling city which has made it difficult for trucks carrying raw materials and finished products move in and out of the plant. The local residents and authorities disturbed by the congestion caused due to the plant, want the issue to be addressed.
