Also expected at Monday's AGM is an announcement about MUL hiving off its loss-making Japanese subsidiary, Suzuki Motors. The Japanese car unit has been making losses for several years now, and senior officials at MUL said it was only a matter of time before this had to happen.
Even more Shock!! I am lost for words.

Hey this is a gimmic by TOI to get viewers attention. The article talks about the "possible" development of delhi in the next 20 years.
Just a load of BS, guess they are out of good subjects.

I thought as much! ) For a while even I was stumped. My only reaction was ***! haa haa haaaa... These guys ran out of stories I guess, so cooked up this bull.

And what official announcement? If anything the Suzuki guys should sue the pants off TOI. :P

Seems to be some love-letter to Delhi, with the whole walled city to world city thing. What a joke.

thisis the best in 2025 lalloo will become the prime minster and is held for cow dung scam
haa haa anywayz if maruti parts from suzuki and enters forgn makets with its own designs it can do wonders.. i strongly feel this coz all the major comapanies have a pinch in the form of indians and chineese with them..and we are considerd to be of top potential .wouldnt the iitians work for ffrn companies andwas lot of oil present in india we could have been in a better position... to add up the whole system bicameral rule should be changed

If i am not mistaken Suzuki does have some stake in GM in the U.S?

Fat chance MUL will be buying GM.
