Maruti Suzuki has handed over the first batch of its houses from its township project in Haryana. This is the third such project from the Indian auto giant. Read on for full details.
India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki just handed over the first batch of affordable modern eco-friendly houses to its employees from its recently completed housing township in Dharuhera. Out of a total of 350 houses, the remaining are expected to be ready for possession in a staggered manner. Maruti Suzuki launched its first housing project in 1989 at Chakkarpur, Gurugram and its second project in 1994 at Bhondsi, Gurugram. The Dharuhera project is the third one and has been christened Maruti Suzuki Enclave and the company is already exploring new housing projects based on the needs of the employees. With the global pandemic that is Covid-19 bringing an economic downturn, Maruti management made sure to give employee welfare projects the same emphasis as reviving production and sales figures.
"One of the key reasons of Maruti Suzuki’s sustained success and leadership despite the presence of many global players is that the relationship between the company and its employees is of partnership and mutual trust," the company said in a statement. The employees see the growth of the company as the instrument of their own growth and make all efforts to make it happen. Similarly, the company shares the benefits of economic growth with its employees and their families and takes care of their all-round wellbeing.
The company also stated that unlike normal employee housing projects, the township will be managed and owned by the employees themselves. With co-ordination with the Haryana government for approvals and monitoring the quality and execution through a professional agency, Maruti facilitated employes with bulk negotiation for land and building purposes. The automaker also provided financial support to its employees with soft loans. The employees have also benefitted from government schemes Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana and Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojana, the statement added.
The building of the Maruti Suzuki Enclave has been carried out using eco-friendly practices and expertise from the company. The township hosts well-maintained gardens, LED street lights, rainwater harvesting, sewage treatment plant (STP), water treatment plant and electrical sub-station, among others. These apartments feature modern and best quality Monolithic Construction Technology. In this state-of-art technology, the whole structure along with the slab is cast in a single go avoiding the use of bricks, thereby reducing pollution and time drastically. Provided with security, homes will have access to utility services such as housekeeping, electrician and plumber, among others.
