My journey at Maruti has been exciting, challenging and full of learning. I joined Maruti as a GET in 1991, got the opportunity to get design training in Japan and have worked in product engineering and supplier quality assurance functions. I also received ample support and ...encouragement from my seniors to pursue my academic studies and completed my MBA and PhD while working here. Besides working on various roles in functional domain, I got opportunities to work on various cross functional projects and activities, including roles in industry associations and professional bodies. Built on a strong foundation with blend of Japanese work practices, Maruti fosters an open work culture, with focus on continuous improvement, team work and holistic people development including mentoring. Performance is rewarded well within the organization. In order to succeed, one needs to have a strong desire, determination to excel, be a dedicated team player and after all be a disciplined person .
