Maruti plant may opt for CISF se­cu­rity


The Maruit Suzuki plant at Mane­sar plant may opt for ad­di­tional se­cu­rity for its em­ploy­ees and pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties. It is con­tem­plat­ing de­ploy­ment of the Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force (CISF) or a per­ma­nent pres­ence of Haryana po­lice at its fac­tory premises.

In case the com­pany chooses CISF cover it would have to give a for­mal re­quest in this re­gard to the Min­istry of Home Af­fairs (MHA). Only af­ter MHA’s ap­proval would give pro­tec­tion to the Maruti Suzuki plant.

The CISF charges a lo­gis­tics and per­son­nel fee from the com­pany — a mone­tary propo­si­tion which may not be too high for the au­tomaker to avoid vi­o­lent in­ci­dents in fu­ture.

The CISF used to pro­vide se­cu­rity cover to Maruti’s Gur­gaon plant ever since the joint ven­ture com­pany was formed be­tween the In­dian Gov­ern­ment and Ja­pan’s Suzuki Mo­tor.

The se­cu­rity cover was with­drawn af­ter the gov­ern­ment sold its ma­jor­ity stake in the com­pany.
