Jamshedpur, Nov 5 (UNI) Amidst the ongoing financial slowdown and production slump, Tata Motors, the largest automobile manufacturer of the country, will close its production line in the Jamshedpur heavy vehilce plant for three days begining tomorrow.
Confirming the move, the spokesperson of the company's labour union Bachha Singh told UNI here today that the plant would be on a block closure from tomorrow for three days during which all production will be stalled.
''The management has informed us about it and said that this step was being taken as a cost cotrol measure. The production has dropped from almost 500 units per day to around 150 recently. The closure would be adjusted on the lines of earn live,'' he added.
The auto giant has already disengaged almost all of its around 3,000 non-permanent workers due to production slump. It gave no work notice to half of them on October 20, 23 and November 3. Half of such workers were ousted during the general monsoon slump and were not taken back.
Recently the plant had brought down the number of production shifts to one from the normal three days.
