Maruti to open its new plant in Gujarat

Maruti Suzuki India's largest car manufacturing company is planning to start their new plant in Ahmedabad in Gujarat.

Two other big giant in car manufacturing like General Motors and Tata Motors already made Gujarat as their manufacturing house. They park their plant in Halol and sanand respectively. Maruti Suzuki have its manufacturing unit in Gurgaon and Manesar with a capacity of 1.2 units. Now Maruti's third unit which is about to start is fully concerned to the exports of New Maruti Swift,, Estilo and A-Star, which it currently exports to Europe and Africa from Mundra port. Over 1 lakh units are exported under the full fledged pre-dispatch inspection unit.



Due to direct road and rail link to mundra Sanand seems to be an ideal location. State industries department official said that Maruti has wrapped up a 500-acre plot next to the Tata Motors' Nano plant. There is some doubt on the ownership of the land but there is comment on this doubt by the spokesperson of Maruti Suzuki. When Tata Motors shifted it plant from West Bengal to to Gujarat they get some concession from government and now Maruti Suzuki also seeks to get that amount of concession.
