Damn And here I was having taken over 3 months to td a whole load of cars, only to find out finally that the one I want (A-Star) will not be available. Of course, by Diwali, Honda would have the Brio AT I guess, but I really did not want to wait.

I expect at least a month of delay before production kicks off again. By the time that translates to dispatches to other cities, it will be October at the very earliest. Maybe even later.

Speculation is rife that Maruti's Manesar plant could be functional by as early as next week. Although it has not been confirmed officially, god knows Maruti needs to get back on track as soon as possible.

I think it s quasi official. The suppliers have been asked to start sending in parts from the 14th.

I guess RC Bhargava, being the very experienced ex-IAS he is, must have either got something off the record, or realised that further delay in restarting will not help.

I must say I am surprised to say the least.

One of the dealers told me that it is starting from 18th of this month. Since 18th is a saturday, I would take this with a pinch of salt! However, he mentioned that Maruti guys are visiting each and every dealer and assuring them that the supplies would start soon. Also, he mentioned maruti is gearing up for 2 new cars during diwali (New Alto and SUV!) I feel, he meant to say Alto 800 and new Ritz.

I too had booked the Swift ZDI in June at Rana Motors, Gurgaon and was waiting for delivery. However I have now decided to buy the SAFARI LX and cancel my booking.
Any idea how long does the dealer take to refund the booking amount?

I'm in the same boat as you, only difference is I will be opting for a Punto 90HP instead . The wait for the Swift is far from over. It might take some more months for them to start dispatching cars, according to the information my sales guy gave me. From what I found out at the showroom, they will give the refund ONLY by cheque, in the name of the person who booked it. They give it in a day or two after you inform them about your decision to cancel. There will be no penalty charged for cancelling the booking, owing to this tight situation Maruti is in. They will refund the entire amount.

Maruti to re-open Manesar plant on August 21, 500 permanent workers fired - The Economic Times

It will take another 1 month to start the production but i wonder what made them to fire 500 Permanent workers When the culprits are already behind bars. To quote from article As below.

Quote:
asked about the progress of investigation into the incident of violence, Bhargava said that it will continue and more arrests may be made soon. Five hundred permanent workers were fired based on initial investigations, he added
IMO they are just preparing the ground for next round of confrontations & Have taken the situation as a opportunity to get rid of all workers. I am really concerned about the after effect of firing these 500 workers . If all 500 were found guilty why only 114 are arrested so far. IMO they are firing the whole A shift of 650 workers, working that day .

The brighter side of this solution is when they replace 500 permanent workers with 500 contract workers, the contract workers will have lesser permanent workers to be jealous of . Aside from the lesser payroll costs of course.

But on a serious note, isn't the firing of the 500 permanent workers a prerogative of MSIL? Every firm/organization has a code of conduct and even though all 500 of them were not actually involved in the violence, according to the inquiry conducted by MSIL they were either part of insubordination or violation of that code of conduct that MSIL has or should have. It happens in every organization but then MSIL should be prepared to face any negative fallout of the decisions if there are any. They simply should stop whining like this all the time when any of their decisions backfire. Say for some reason this decision causes remaining workers to become more disgruntled and they are shoddy at their work. Maybe more vehicles start failing quality checks or bugs creep through. Those are the consequences of their decision. Same happens in all organizations. You pay peanuts, you get monkeys, sad employees make sad products, this is purely my personal opinion of course, I don't want to get into another discussion around cost of living, per capita income, blah blah .

^^Armed police and security guards! Good. Must look like a German factory in Schindler's list! For my next car I will be moving away from Maruti. I hate products made in sweatshops.

So the news that I received from the dealer was more or less correct. That means, two new cars from MSIL for diwali!

RCB has also announced that the percentage of contract workers will be kept under 20%. So they will be hiring a good number of workers as company employees.

As for the police etc. I guess it is probably necessary but how about renaming Maruti Suzuki as Stalag Maruti !
