Maruti Success Story: Maruti Suzuki is the largest car manufacturer in the country. At the same time, its name is taken with great respect all over the world. Maruti Suzuki vehicles are exported to more than 60 countries around the world. The first vehicle of this company is the Maruti 800 which comes in the hatchback segment.

Maruti Suzuki has always been making vehicles for the common man. After the creation of the Maruti 800, there was no looking back and the company launched the Maruti 800 for the first time in 1983, continuing to manufacture more than one car. At that time the country’s Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was the first customer of this car. Harpal Singh himself had handed over the key to the Prime Minister.

Not many would know, but the company was formed in 1983, almost 12 years before the launch of the Maruti 800. But during these 12 years the company did not produce a single work.

In fact, Indira Gandhi’s son Sanjay Gandhi had dreamed of opening a car manufacturing company and to fulfill this, he formed Maruti Limited under the Companies Act. When this company was formed in 1971, its first managing director was Sanjay Gandhi himself. Sanjay tried hard to run this company, many times its designs and prototypes were also made but he could not succeed.

Later, he died in a 1980 plane crash. After this, the central government tied up with Japanese automaker Suzuki in 1981 to save his dream. After doing this, this company got a different identity and Maruti 800 was built. Till 2003, the central government had a major stake in this company. But this year this part was sold, now the government does not interfere in this company.

Before 1983, Hindustan Motors Ambassador and Contessa cars used to be owned by politicians and big people. At that time common people used to have bikes like Bajaj Chetak and Bullet or Ambassador in the name of two wheelers. But Maruti 800 came and turned the whole dice. This low-cost four-wheeler became the first choice of the common man at that time and soon Maruti became the country’s largest car manufacturer.
