Pak Suzuki Motor Company (PSMC) said on Tuesday that it has extended the shutdown of its automobile production plant till September 23.

In its notice sent to the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX), PSMC cited import restrictions by the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) that have "adversely impacted clearance of import consignment which resultantly affected the inventory levels", saying that this will result in plant-shutdown from September 12 to September 16.

It also stated that due to period maintenance, the plant will then be shut down from September 19 to September 23.

However, PSMC stated that its motorcycle plant will remain operational.

This is the fourth such notice by the automaker in a span of three weeks.

Last week, on September 2, PSMC notified that it will be extending its automobile production from September 8 to September 9.

On August 29, it had also notified the PSX of an extension in plant shutdown from August 29 to August 31 on account of a drop in inventory levels.

Pakistan's auto industry, highly dependent on imports, has been caught in the midst of an exchange-rate crisis, as the SBP, after the unabated rupee devaluation, imposed restrictions on the opening of Letters of Credit (LCs).

Back in July, the automakers sought intervention from the central bank for opening LCs for the import of CKD kits to avoid delays in car deliveries and further cost escalation.
