The Renault-Nissan factory at Oragadam near Chennai will remain closed for a week from May 22 to May 29, 2016.
Renault-Nissan Automotive India has stated that the plant will remain closed for the period of a week as part of the scheduled May maintainance.
Renault-Nissan released a statement about the shutdown stating, "Renault Nissan Automotive India will be closed for a week from May 22-29 2016 for planned annual maintenance", the company said in a statement.
