Good News Coming From Tata Motors Amid Pandemic
In an official statement issued by the domestic carmaker Tata Motors on Monday 19, 2021 said that its production unit in Pune is operating its operations with a limited number of labours. This statement by the carmaker is a response to the rumours according to which the company has postponed the production of few vehicles due to the aggressiveness of COVID-19’s second wave in the country. According to the sources of the company, it is complying with all the safety protocols issued by the government, this should not mean that the company has halted the production of certain passenger vehicles.
Last week some of the reports leaked in media the home-grown carmaker has postponed the production activities with effect from April 15, 2021, to April 30, 2021 at the Pune plant. A report regarding this was submitted to the MIDC police station of Bhosari in Pune. However, the new statement released by the company disproves any type of news regarding this.
The fresh statement revealed by the company states "Tata Motors is running operations at its Pune plant in strict compliance with the guidelines mentioned in the 'Break the Chain' order of the Maharashtra government. A limited number of employees are attending duties adhering to all safety protocols, distancing norms and hygiene standards. We continue to remain vigilant about the safety and well-being of our employees. In addition to mandated testing, screening at plant gates is robust and if a symptomatic case is identified, we ensure that the employee is isolated and provided with all support for quarantine and contact tracing thereafter. Our medical teams have also begun vaccination drives in our plants by collaborating with local health authorities, for our eligible employees of age 45 years and above."
The production unit of Tata Motors in Pune manufactures the Tata Altroz, New Safari Storme, Harrier, and the commercial vehicles including trucks and buses.
