Maruti shuts Haryana factories to make oxygen for medical needs
Maruti Suzuki will shut down its factories in Haryana from May 1-9 to make oxygen available for medical needs. The company said it is committed to support the government in diverting oxygen for saving lives.

Accordingly, Maruti Suzuki has decided to advance its maintenance shutdown, originally scheduled for June, to 1st to 9th May,” the company said issuing a statement.
