Faced with an uncertain future, Dharmendra Yadav, 32, has returned to his native village in Mainpuri district of western Uttar Pradesh.
Production cuts by Maruti Suzuki India, India’s largest passenger vehicle maker, have left truck drivers such as Yadav without any work as there has been a decline in demand for trailer trucks, used to transport finished vehicles across the country.
The Suzuki Motor Corporation unit has in recent months announced production cuts at its factories in Gurugram and Manesar in Haryana. Others such as Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) and Renault have taken similar measures at their factories across India.
