New Delhi – With the help of parent Suzuki’s Gujarat plant set for employment later this month. The country’s largest car-maker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) expects to reduce the waiting period for its high selling models like Baleno and Vitara Brezza. In the present, the two models have a waiting period ranging from 20 to 24 weeks depending on the variants ordered by the customers. Our major difficulties faced in 2016 are the lack of manufacturing capacity that results in larger waiting period for these particular models or variants. The employments of the Gujarat plant should give relief in this month 2017 to 2018.

The company has to create capacity so that it may not happen to this extent in the future. But the only thing which Maruti Suzuki is holding from moving faster is the main constraint in this plants. In last year, over 80,000 units have been delivered, but the Baleno is going to cater to around, assure half a lakh orders. The waiting period of the premium hatchback currently at around 6-8 months in various parts of the country.
