As a part of MBA curriculum the current batch (2017-18) of MBA students visited the plant on 6th March 2017. Since it was difficult to cover the entire plant in one visit, the company officials have explained some portion of manufacturing process through PPT presentation and rest through by personally taking around physically. By this way the students were shown the entire process of manufacture to final assembly of different vehicles. At the end there was an inter-active session with the technical teams who clarified certain doubts raised by the students. By and large the visit was very much informative to students who have gained practical knowledge on various aspects of manufacturing.
