New Delhi: Maruti Suzuki India on Thursday said it will shut its main plant at Gurgaon for two days starting on Friday due to component supply constraints from SPIL, where workers are on a stir in support of the striking colleagues at the country's largest car-maker's Manesar plant.

"Maruti Suzuki has decided to suspend production at the Gurgaon plant on October 14 and October 15. This is in view of the non-availability of components for cars," the company said in a statement.

Production at Gurgaon plant remained low on Thursday and rolled out only 600 vehicles as against the normal daily production of 2,800 vehicles, it said.

While models like M800, Omni, Eeco and Gypsy are not dependent on the component supply from Suzuki Powertrain India Limited (SPIL), it was considered that operating the plant only for these models will not be viable, it added.

"The production loss for these models can be recovered once the production resumes," it said.

Workers at SPIL and Suzuki Motorcycle India Pvt Ltd (SMIPL) have gone on a simultaneous strike since October 7 in support of their colleagues at MSI Manesar plant.

SPIL supplies engines and transmission to MSI.

The strike by the workers entered the 7th day on Thursday despite the Haryana government declaring it illegal on Wednesday for violating a settlement agreement signed on October 1 to end a 33-day-long standoff.

The Haryana Labour Department on Thursday filed a civil suit in a Gurgaon court alleging that that unions of SPIL and SMIPL and representatives of MSI' Manesar plant workers had violated agreement and action must be taken against them.

The civil suit in Gurgaon court also pleaded that the unions of SPIL and  SMIPL be de-recognised.

Meanwhile, the company said its Manesar plant "continues to remain captive in the hands of striking workers" and there has been no production.

MSI said only after the plant premises are vacated, it would consider any talks on the issue. No talks are possible as long as the striking workers are inside the factory premises.

In the meantime, various trade unions and labour bodies of factories located in the Gurgaon-Manesar-Dharuhera-Bawal industrial belt held a joint protest in front of MSI's Manesar plant in support of striking workers of the car-maker.

Sources said officials of Gurgaon district administration and state labour department are holding meetings to find a solution to the problem.
