"Having closed down three of its subsidiaries, we are now looking to revive HMT Machine Tools as it is in the strategic sector," a senior official of Department of Heavy Industry told PTI.

The government had decided to close three unviable units of HMT including the once popular HMT Watches, along with HMT Chinar Watches and HMT Bearings, by offering a voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) to employees.

HMT Machine Tools Limited was carved out as a subsidiary of HMT Ltd (having 100 per cent shareholding) in the year 2000 with its head office in Bengaluru.

The company has facilities for manufacturing various types of machine tools and printing machines in its units located at Bengaluru, Pinjore, Kalamassery, Hyderabad and Ajmer.
