When contacted, an official of TKM said the recall would affect about 1,100 units of the model sold in India.

"A potential aberration on the left or right side of the driveshaft has been observed in a few cases. We have decided to proactively inspect and repair/replace the drive shafts," the company said, adding it was a precautionary measure.

It further said the rectification might take about two hours.
