Auto stocks have opened the day mainly in the red with Maruti Suzuki Ltd and Force Motors Ltd leading the losses. As per a leading financial daily, Maruti Suzuki India Ltd is planning to use its cash reserves to buy real estate for dealers in India and build manufacturing plants for its Japanese parent Suzuki Motor Corp. in emerging markets like Latin America and Africa. As per the daily, the move is likely to disappoint investors. The company is also planning to invest a part of its reserves worth Rs 75 bn in mutual funds, debt funds and fixed maturity funds. The company's Board is yet to take a final call regarding the plan. These plans follow recent announcement by Suzuki Motor that it would invest Rs 30 bn in a plant in Gujarat and the cars thus produced will be sold to Maruti Suzuki. The company's Board will meet on 15th March 2014 to discuss its operational plans for the next fiscal year.
