Nissan has resumed operations In India after the lockdown has been partially lifted across the country. The company had halted its entire operations due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting lockdown in the country.
Nissan has also started dispatching BS6 cars from its manufacturing facility at Chennai to its dealerships across the country. Renault Nissan Automotive India Pvt. Ltd. (RNAIPL), resumed production as per local guidelines on May 4 and dispatch of vehicles started on May 7.
The company has also issued guidelines after the restart to ensure the safekeeping of its workforce during the current crisis.

In continuation of our customer-centric approach, adhering to all local Govt. guidelines and following all necessary health and safety parameters, we have commenced operations across India as part of our business continuity plan."
