RESTARTING: Indian carmaker Maruti Suzuki said it will reopen a factory with tightened security, including a force of 100 police, after a riot by workers last month killed one person and injured dozens of others.

UNEVEN ROAD: The dispute between workers and management stems from a wide gap in pay for contract workers, who make about $107 a month, and permanent workers, who take home three times as much.

COSTLY CHAOS: Analysts say the shutdown cost the company about $18 million a day. Maruti Suzuki, a subsidiary of Japan's Suzuki Motor Corp., has two car assembly plants in India.
