Maruti to contribute Rs 2 crore towards the relief efforts in Chennai

Maruti to contribute Rs 2 crore towards the relief efforts in Chennai


Maruti Suzuki has announced that it will donate Rs two crore to the Prime Minister's national relief fund. The idea behind this move is to toughen the relief efforts of the government towards victims of the recent floods in Chennai.

Maruti joins Hyundai, Nissan and others who’ve contributed to these efforts in Tamil Nadu post the floods. Close to 6,500 Maruti vehicles showed up at Maruti workshops in the past weeks after the floods, of which around 1,000 vehicles are back on the road. Maruti has temporarily shifted 200 technicians from its national service network to Chennai to speed up the repair process of the damaged vehicles. Additionally, 31 Maruti mobile vans have been pressed into service to support the efforts done by the workshops. Maruti has also expedited the supply of spare parts to Tamil Nadu and even made special arrangements with the insurance companies to speed up the survey and approval process.

Maruti has added that it will bear 50 per cent of the depreciation amount involved in the insurance repairs for the flood affected vehicles. Usually this depreciation amount is payable by the car owner. To top everything, the company will also offer a 50 per cent waiver on cleaning and polishing charges. Dealers have formed special helplines and dedicated cells to help customers tow vehicles to the workshops.
