Ashok Leyland on Monday said that it will observe non-working days in five of its plants this month,"due to continued weak demand for their products".
Referring to weak demand, Ashok Leyland said, "We write to inform you that the following are the non-working days at our various plant locations during September 2019, due to continued weak demand for our products."
According to Ashok Leyland, Ennore plant will have 16 non-working days, Hosur 1, 2 and CPPS five days, Alwar and Bhandara 10 days. Pantnagar will have 18 non-working days.
Ashok Leyland had in August reported a decline of around 50 per cent in total sales. This comes amid India experiencing a slowdown in the auto sector with a slump in sales.
