The Haryana Government has notified that it has allotted 700 acres of land to Maruti Suzuki, India’s largest car manufacturer, for its proposed R&D Complex in Rohtak.
The upcoming Maruti Suzuki facility, which will be the only such facility by Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) outside of Japan, will see MSIL putting in an investment in the range of facilities into India.
Of the 700 acres land, a dedicated 100 acres will house the Suppliers’ Park. The Rohtak R&D complex, which will be at par with international norms, will house an R&D center for passenger cars including India’s first state-of-the-art test track with a proving ground, wind tunnel, crash facility etc.
The development of the allotted land and construction of the Test track is expected to complete by 2012, while the overall R&D facilities will be progressively completed by 2015.
