Maruti Suzuki on Thursday said it would restart production at its violence-hit factory in Manesar, Haryana on August 21 and dismiss at least 500 permanent workers.

The workers to be sacked include the 154 in police custody for the July 18 violence, which left senior HR executive AK Dev dead and at least 96 officials injured.
 
“Through internal enquiries, we have identified at least 500 permanent workers who, we believe, were involved in the violence. As we further investigate the events of July 18, more could be dismissed,” said RC Bhargava, chairman, Maruti Suzuki India Limited.

Production will begin with 300 workers and 150 cars a day. Five hundred armed police personnel would be deployed in the area — 100 inside the factory.

Another 40 armed personal security officers will protect employees as they travel to and from the factory. Maruti, too, will deploy 100 private guards.
From September 2, Maruti will begin the process of regularising contract workers. The Manesar factories have 1,528 permanent workers and 1,869 on contract.
