Manufacturing operations will be halted temporarily

Hero MotoCorp said the company will utilise these shut-down days to carry out necessary maintenance work in the manufacturing plants. The shutdown will not impact the company's ability to meet the demand, which has been impacted due to localised shut-downs in many states and production loss will be compensated during the remainder of the quarter, the company said in the statement.

All corporate offices of the company are already in Work from Home (WFH) mode and very limited employees are in offices on rotation basis for continuity of essential services.

Even as the auto industry was quick to get back on the path to recovery, with most brands clawing back sales numbers, the latest restrictions, and lockdowns across several states will likely hit the auto industry yet again, as the Indian economy. Observers say that Q4 sales results of FY 21 will be better than expected, but the second wave may hit the industry.
