In the pursuit of giving uncompromising quality to its customers, Maruti Suzuki India targets to help set up skill training and enhancement centres at its over 400 vendors by 2020. These skill training facilities, christened DOJO centres, are training grounds for fresh workmen and re‐skilling for existing workforce. DOJO centres replicate exact working conditions as inside a shop floor, so that the worker feels at ease when he joins work after his training.

The word DOJO means 'a place of the way' in Japanese. In other words, DOJO is a place to train in martial arts.  In manufacturing parlance, a DOJO centre serves as a workshop that helps in skilling, re‐skilling and right skilling workers. These centres help to acclimatize professionals and thoroughly preparing them, especially new workforce before they join work on the shop floor at manufacturing plants.   

A K Tomer, Executive Director (Corporate Planning), Maruti Suzuki (Q,N,C,F)* said, ''To meet the ever evolving customer expectations, ensuring quality at vendor‐end is critical. To help achieve this, Maruti Suzuki has institutionalized the concept of DOJO Centre to be set up at our partners' facilities. By 2020, our over 400 tier‐I partners will have DOJO centres. These state‐of‐the‐art centres develop skills in areas of Quality, Safety and Productivity. This effort is to bring global quality standards and complement the Make in India initiative.''

Shares of the company declined Rs 75.25, or 0.83%, to trade at Rs 8,941.95. The total volume of shares traded was 14,891 at the BSE (12.37 p.m., Thursday).
