"Maruti Suzuki's parent, Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan has also contributed 5 million Japanese Yen for the Jammu and Kashmir floods tragedy. Suzuki Motor Corporation’s contribution is through the Japanese Red Cross Society," it added.

The Company also announced a slew of initiatives for its customers whose vehicles were damaged by the recent floods in the state.

It is temporarily transferring nearly 200 service technicians from its network across the country to Jammu and Kashmir to speed up repair and restoration of the damaged vehicles, it added.

"They will support the 300 technicians currently working in the Maruti Suzuki workshops in the state," the statement said, adding that the company was also rushing parts to the state and is communicating with insurance companies to speed up survey and approval processes.

The company further said, "To support customers in this time of hardship, for the flood affected vehicles repaired under insurance, 50 percent of the depreciation amount will be borne by Maruti Suzuki. Normally, the total depreciation amount is payable by the customer."

Customers can bring their vehicles to any of the 30 Maruti Suzuki workshops in the State. Nearly 20 Maruti Mobile Service vans are also being pressed into service for further support, it added.
