Maruti Suzuki hands over affordable eco-friendly houses to its employees
Maruti Suzuki has concluded the construction of the Maruti Suzuki Enclave — the third such housing society for its employees in Dharuhera, Gurugram today. The first batch of houses out of a total of 360 have been handed over to the employees with the completion of the project. The project aims at yet another initiative from the brand for the well-being of its employees.
Like most other employee residences, the houses will be owned and managed by the employees. In coordination with the government of Haryana, Maruti Suzuki has managed to get bulk negotiation on land and buildings for the employees. Also, the employees are allowed to avail government schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojana with these houses of the township.
The housing project of the Maruti Suzuki Enclave has been carried out using eco-friendly practices. Amenities like gardens, LED street lights, rainwater harvesting, sewage treatment plant (STP), water treatment plant and electrical sub-station are available to employees. Needless to say, the employees will have access to all housekeeping services, electricians and plumbers in the township.
Kenichi Ayukawa, MD & CEO, Maruti Suzuki India said, “A good, affordable and hygienic house is one of the basic needs of employees. All the eligible employees who opted for this location will be soon entering their new homes. With the launch of Maruti Suzuki Enclave housing project, we wish to convey our sense of partnership and gratitude to our employees and their families. We also thank the Central Government and the State Government for their affordable housing friendly policies that have enabled our employees to fulfil their aspirations to own a house. He also added “I am also personally happy about the aspects that this project had full ownership of the employees themselves, that this employs the latest environment-friendly measures and that it could be completed despite the Covid-19 pandemic”
Maruti Suzuki’s approach towards taking care of its employees and their families might be a key reason for the car maker’s success. Maruti Suzuki Enclave has been the third housing project by the car manufacturer for its employees, the first of which was constructed in 1989 at nearby Chakkarpur and the second in 1994 at Bhondsi at Gurugram.
