Not sure how many XL6 models are affected. We should probably post any other recalls for the XL6 in this thread so they are all in once place.

Fire hazard of lithium-ion battery the reason
The country’s largest passenger car maker, Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL), will recall around one-lakh vehicles of its second-generation smart-hybrid vehicles, including the Ciaz, the Ertiga and the recently launched XL6 due to the lithium-ion battery fire hazard.

Various sources BusinessLine spoke to said that there have been at least two cases in the recent past, in which the lithium-ion battery, under the passenger seat in front, had caught fire.
“It is mainly due to the new lithium-ion battery fitted in the new smart hybrid technology cars over the last one year. There were a few cases of fire in the recent past,” a source privy to the matter told BusinessLine.

According to sources, there are more than three lakh mild and smart hybrid Maruti cars on the road today.
This is likely to be one of the biggest recalls by the company. Recently, the company announced a voluntary recall of 40,618 units of the WagonR (1 litre) manufactured between November 15, 2018 and August 12, 2019.
The recall campaigns were undertaken globally to rectify potential safety defects.
Calls and messages to a Maruti spokesperson remained unanswered.
The monthly sales of the XL6 and the Ertiga, have averaged around 4,200 units and 7,000 units, respectively.

I think the following thread (follow the link) would be applicable to this discussion as well.

However, I think, the major task here would be to spread the news as I am sure not all the owners of these vehicles must be aware that there is something such going on. Also, not everyone has access to/accesses such forums where these happenings are discussed.
