The country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Wednesday said it would resume operations at its Manesar plant from May 12. All activities would be carried out strictly in accordance with the government regulations and guidelines, and observing the company's own concern for the highest standards of safety, MSI said.

On April 22, the Haryana government had granted permission to the auto major to restart its Manesar-based manufacturing facility, but the company had said it will resume operations only when it can maintain continuous production and sell vehicles, "which is not possible at this point of time".
