Maruti Suzuki India would resume partial production at its violence hit Manesar plant by next Tuesday.
"Almost all the assessments have been completed and partial resumption of the Manesar plant is likely next week. Monday being a holiday, it is likely that work will resume on Tuesday," a source said.
While the labour issue remains a factor, the initial work is mostly expected to be in the automated divisions of the plant, the source added.
When contacted company spokesperson declined to comment.
The source also said the company will work along with the district administration on the security to avoid a repeat of the July 18 incident.
Maruti Suzuki India chief operating officer (Administration) S Y Siddiqui on Monday had said the company would take a final call on Friday.
"We will be able to complete total assessment of the situation by Friday and expect a clear picture to emerge regarding the reopening of the plant by then," he had said.
The company had declared a lockout at the Manesar plant on July 21 following violence and arson in which one senior executive was killed and 100 others were injured.
