Maruti Suzuki | The stock price shed over 11 percent as equity markets were battered amid new virus scare and fresh restrictions. The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal today stayed the order of the Competition Commission of India that imposed a penalty of Rs 200 crore rupees on automaker Maruti Suzuki earlier this year. In an interim relief granted to the carmaker, the NCLAT has also agreed to hear Maruti Suzuki’s appeal against CCI’s decision to impose the penalty. Until further orders from the appellate tribunal, CCI’s order for penalty will remain. The auto major has ruled out getting back into the diesel segment as it believes sales of such vehicles would further come down with the onset of the next phase of emission norms in 2023, according to a senior company official. The country's largest carmaker believes the next phase of emission norms would jack up the cost of diesel vehicles, thus further impacting their sales in the market which for the last few years has seen a gradual shift towards petrol cars.
