"This is a part of Suzlon’s cost-cutting and debt reduction programme," Chief Financial Officer Kirti Vagadia said.

The company, which got a lifeline from its lenders in January with Rs 9,500-crore debt restructuring, has embarked on a plan to reduce debt and interest by selling non-core assets and cut its fixed costs by nearly 20 percent.

As part of this strategy, the Pune-based company has so far laid off 750 jobs in its German subsidiary REpower. The company has a total workforce of around 13,000 across 32 geographies.

At 09:34 hours IST, the stock was quoting at Rs 14.49, up 2.19 percent on Bombay Stock Exchange. Market capitalisation of the company currently stands at Rs 3,030.75 crore.
