Maruti Suzuki Indian Ltd. sold one million cars in India last year, this year, it is expected to be 1.2 million which is a huge number. Maruti has its R&D center at Gurgaon and its manufacturing plants at Gurgaon and Manesar. The combined capacity of these two manufacturing plants is not enough for coming years, so moving ahead Maruti is going to open a new facility at Rohtak, in twice the area as its Gurgaon facility. Maruti Rohtak plant will be spread over 600 Acres of land and will have a Research and Development center as well as a manufacturing plant with a capacity of as high as 6 Lakh cars per year. This will help Maruti to keep on-track with the rising demand of Maruti cars in India. Maruti has already started working on regional Maruti stockyards around India to meet car demands on time.
It will take a couple of years to make this a reality and an investment of over Rs. 1000 crores from Maruti. Maruti is already working on its initiatives to reduce dependency on Suzuki Japan and develop its own cars in India. The Made in India car by Maruti maybe showcased in the Auto Expo 2012.
