Shashi, please do let us know how you got these details. It would be even better if you could help the other Maruti owners we get here.

Kia's VIN number would consist of 19 characters. And you can find complete VIN number underneath right hand front seat on the chassis.

However, you have only provided 17 characters--10th character represents the model year and 19th represents the month. In your case 10th character is N which implies year 2022.

That is incorrect. Earlier Hyundai-KIA models would have VINs consisting of 19 digits but Hyundai's GSW itself doesn't allow for more than 17 digit VINs. The two additional characters might be there, but it doesn't matter anymore to be fair.

If I am correct, the delivery date for your vehicle is 15-10-2021. We get this data from Hyundai GSW, you have to create an account to proceed further.

Wow! that is nice to see. Exactly Akash, got it delivered on 15th-Oct-2021.

However, a bit confused now--since my car has J as 19th character on the chassis which implies that it is manufactured in September, why the date of production is 1st-oct-2021. Is there any difference between the manufacturing month and Production date..?
