Quoting from HERE:

And a fully gutted factory will take months to restart production, IMO. Bad times ahead for these models, especially during the festive season.

A question to the people having the know-how of how the cars are manufactured: can they manufacture cars without lamps, and add it later (as late as 1 or 2 months) once the parts are available?

Hope they won't deliver cars without head/tail lamps

Perhaps holds true for Brezza / Baleno. But I am sure that they won't stop production and will transfer capacity to Dzire, Swift, etc. We should know in the monthly sales on the true impact.
