Production at Pantnagar Factory impacted by Curfew: Tata Motors

MUMBAI - Tata Motors Ltd. (TTM), India's largest auto maker by revenue, Tuesday said production at its Pantnagar factory in the northern state of Uttarakhand has been impacted as police have imposed a curfew to curb violent clashes between local groups.

"Our operations at Pantnagar have partially been affected due to the problems at Pantnagar, as part of the plant is under curfew," Debasis Ray, a spokesman for Tata Motors.

He didn't elaborate on the production loss, but said the issue is expected to be resolved "in a couple of days".
"We are working on two shifts instead of three," he added.

Tata Motors makes the Ace light truck and Magic, Iris and Winger minivans at the Pantnagar plant.
