The world's largest car maker, Toyota, has halted production at its two factories in India amid a labour dispute regarding wages.

In a statement, Toyota said it was left with no other option but to declare a lockout of the premises to ensure the safety of its workers and management personnel.

Toyota said over the past 25 days, some employees have resorted to deliberate stoppages of the production line, abuse and threatening of supervisors thereby continuously disrupting business.

The lockout will affect 6,400 workers.

Negotiations over a wage increase have been taking place for the past 10 months.
