Amid a slowdown in India's auto sector, Ashok Leyland has declared five non-working days at its plant in Chennai starting Friday.
Workers at the commercial vehicle maker's Chennai plant received a communication from Ashok Leyland about the five-day holiday, sources told NDTV.
 
Sluggishness and contraction in the commercial vehicle market has led to the move by Ashok Leyland, company sources said. The development comes as the country's auto sector is struggling against a slump in sales and lakhs of estimated job cuts. 
 
The five days of no production will impact around 5,000 workers at the plant, including 3,000 contractual personnel, sources said. The wages for non-working days will be decided later, they added.
