Production Partially Impacted at Plants: Hero MotoCorp

New Delhi: Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest two-wheeler maker, on Monday said production and dispatches from its four plants in Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand have been impacted due to the ongoing agitation of the Jat community demanding job reservation.

“Dispatches from all our plants – at Gurgaon and Dharuhera (Haryana), Neemrana (Rajasthan) and Haridwar (Uttarakhand) – have been affected due to the ongoing blockade of the national highways and other roads,” a Hero MotoCorp spokesperson said in a statement.

Production output has also been partially impacted on Monday at the plants due to the ongoing impasse, the spokesperson added.

As of last quarter, the company had an installed capacity to produce 81 lakh units per annum from the four production facilities.

Sources from rival Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) said there was no impact on production at the company’s Manesar facility.

The plant has a capacity to roll out 16 lakh units annually.
