Major boost to Haryana’s auto industry as state allots land for Maruti Suzuki’s 3rd plant
On Thursday, giving a major boost to the auto industry in Haryana, the Haryana state government signed an agreement for the allotment of land parcels to Maruti Suzuki India Ltd and Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Ltd, in which the third manufacturing facility of the automobile major will come up in industrial town Kharkhoda.
The automaker already has two manufacturing facilities in Haryana. The third facility will have a production capacity of 250,000 vehicles per annum and is expected to be commissioned by 2025.
The new facility has the potential to generate employment for 11,000 to 13,000 skilled, unskilled and semi-skilled persons.
Accordingly, 800 acres and 100-acre land were allotted to these companies at Kharkhoda, respectively. The capital outlay for this facility is estimated at around Rs 18,000 crore.
Maruti Suzuki will be setting up its project in the Industrial Model Township (IMT) at Kharkhoda, which is strategically located on the Delhi-Haryana border, adjoining the western peripheral (Kundli-Manesar-Palwal) Expressway and State Highway 18
The IMT not only has abundant water and power supply from the NCR canal and the electricity utilities but also has an integrated industrial township with world-class infrastructure, being developed over an area of approximately 3,217 acres.
Due to its proximity to Delhi and direct connectivity with Delhi Bahadurgarh, Gurugram, and Sonipat via the KMP Expressway, Kharkhoda IMT is expected to emerge as the next node for industrial development in Haryana.
Notably, after setting up its first car plant at Gurugram in 1983, Maruti has steadily expanded its manufacturing footprint in Haryana by setting up a production facility at Manesar and a state-of-the-art R&D center in Rohtak. The two plants in Haryana – Gurugram and Manesar – together roll out around 15.5 lakh units annually.
