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The security cover was withdrawn after the government sold its majority stake in the company.
