Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated India’s first in-plant railway siding at Suzuki Motor Gujarat Private Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), via video conferencing today. This initiative is part of the Prime Minister’s flagship Gati Shakti programme, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint in logistics, decrease fossil fuel consumption and alleviate road congestion.

The Gujarat railway siding facility, once fully operational, is expected to dispatch 300,000 cars annually to 15 destinations across India. This project is a collaboration between Gujarat Rail Infrastructure Development (G-RIDE), a partnership between the Government of Gujarat and Indian Railways, along with the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) and MSIL.

Hisashi Takeuchi, Managing Director & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, dedicated the project to green logistics. “We are honoured to be part of the Prime Minister’s ambitious Gati Shakti programme that fosters efficiencies in logistics. Today marks a significant milestone as we become India’s first automobile company to have a railway siding facility within its manufacturing plant,” said Takeuchi.

He further added, “As we gear to double our production capacity from the present 2 million units per annum to 4 million units per annum by 2030-31, the dispatches of vehicles from railways too will increase multifold. This in-plant railway facility reinforces our commitment towards sustainable mobility.”
