IEP CHANDIGARH AUGUST 27, 2022
The Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi will virtually lay the foundation stone of Maruti-Suzuki’s third plant at Industrial Model Township (IMT), Kharkhoda, Sonipat on August 28, 2022. Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal and Deputy Chief Minister, Sh. Dushyant Chautala along with various central ministers and MPs will be present during the programme.
The Chief Minister said that the foundation stone would prove to be a new milestone in the industrial progress of Haryana. Today Haryana has become a major automobile manufacturing hub in the country. At present, about 50 percent of the cars made in India are manufactured in Haryana. With Maruti Suzuki setting up another such plant a new industrial hub is going to be developed in Haryana, asserted Sh. Manohar Lal.
The Chief Minister said that the State Government has given all kinds of facilities to the industry, due to which the state is progressing continuously as an industrial hub. He said that investment of big companies like Maruti in Kharkhoda has given a positive impetus to the industrial environment.
Sh. Manohar Lal said that after Gurugram and Manesar this is the third plant of Maruti Suzuki which will be set up in Haryana. Along with the Maruti car, the foundation stone of Suzuki’s bike manufacturing plant will also be laid here. This huge investment being made by Maruti and Suzuki Company is certainly going to open doors of employment and development for the State and in the coming times, Kharkhoda is certainly going to become at par with Gurugram and Manesar.
Notably, in May 2022, an MoU was signed for the allotment of land to Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) and Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited for the setting up of this plant at IMT. An amount of Rs. 2400 crore was spent for the purchase of this land and more than Rs. 20,000 are to be invested. Maruti’s new plants will be set up on an area of 800 acres and 100 acres respectively.
