Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has announced a temporary halt of production operations across all its four plants from Saturday. The company has manufacturing plants at Manesar in Haryana, Tapukara in Rajasthan, Narsapura in Karnataka and Vithalapur in Gujarat.
The decision comes in the wake of the multiple lockdowns in various cities. Honda, the nation’s second-largest two-wheeler maker, will utilise this temporary production halt from May 1 to May 15 for annual plant maintenance activities. Depending on the prevailing Covid-19 situation and market recovery, Honda will review its production plan in subsequent months, a statement from the company said.
All Honda office associates will continue to work from home to maintain business continuity while extending support to customers and business partners. Only essential staff will work at plants and offices, HMSI said.
Earlier, Hero MotoCorp had announced that it was temporarily halting operations at its manufacturing facilities across the country, including its global parts centre, from April 22 to May 1, in a staggered manner. —FE
