"If the steering column is found defective, the company will replace the steering column free of cost," MSI said in a statement.

The new steering column has been despatched to dealer workshops.

This exercise is limited to vehicles within the above specified range and does not pertain to any other vehicle of the company or any of its exports, MSI added.

Maruti Suzuki dealers will contact owners of all vehicles in the above range, it said.

The last big recall made by the company was in February 2010 when it recalled about 100,000 units of its flagship export model 'A-Star' to replace a faulty fuel pump part.
