Tata Motors today said it has cancelled plans to go for another block closure of its Jamshedpur plant, where it mainly manufactures heavy commercial vehicles, for six days from January 12. "The planned block closure from January 12-17 stands cancelled due to changes in production schedules," a company spokesperson said.
Consequently, the Jamshedpur plant will have normal operations, he added.
Earlier the company had said it planned another block closure of the plant, which would have been the fourth time in three months as demand of commercial vehicles slumped. The company had already undergone three block closures of its Jamshedpur plant on November 6-8, November 25-29 and December 8-13.
A heavy slowdown in commercial vehicle demand had forced the company to undertake temporary block closures of its Pune and Lucknow plants as well.
It had closed the Pune CV plant on November 21-26 and December 5-7 and December 29-31.
The Lucknow facility was also closed down on November 10-15 and December 1-4 last year.
