VW emission scandal

Recommended Posts

In our country most of the commercial vehicles and govt operated buses don't comply with the pollution norms. They manage to get PUC. Earlier TATA diesel cars coming out of factory would not pass the PUC but RTO. would pass the vehicles from under pressure, dealers. PUC certificate issuing outlets are flexible so as not to loose the business.

It is better to do random PUC check by RTO on all vehicles, so that pollution should be controlled by owner's responsibility. Any how Government initiated this and ARAI have started this random checking. Let us hope for good. And what about Diesel engine trains, power generators, auto rikshaws running partially on kerosine. What action may the Government take on it.

some points related to pollution by petrol and diesel engines

carbon monoxide produced by petrol engines, when a car is warming up, dangerous

Suspended particulate matter or SPM, the tiny particles emitted from the exhaust of a diesel engine.Modern diesel engines are usually fitted with filters to to reduce the amount of the emitted SPM, but the bigger problem lies with older diesel engines as they not have filters to filter such particles

Hydrocarbon contain harmful chemicals which causes cancer. Petrol engines emit higher levels of HC than diesel

Nitrous oxide combines with the lowest level of the ozone layer to form smog. New diesel engines produce a higher amount of NOx than new petrol engines, but petrol-powered cars produce more NO2 as time goes by. Nitous oxides are more dangerous than all the others.

Very sorry state of affairs.

The Govt could ban MAGGI , why doesnt it step up and ban VW from selling its vehicles in India till they come clean.

Others manufactures have also admitted to it and they should all be taken to task.

No wonder its a Suit Boot KI Sarkar.

Hi librankur, good day wishes,

How can ban VW without doing trustful testing. only US has found this scandal. More polluting vehicles are here in India already. Only Govt. can put penalty. What about road side samosa and kachori and other snacks at stalls, comparing with Maggi. Are they free from lead, oxidants and carcinogens. Nestle is food giant and the Govt. has taken action against it and it is a bold and model step for improving packed food quality in India. I have read that Got had already asked explanation to VW

Hi Harikuttun

They have already admitted to the act , you still want them to go scott free.

just because we have BAD APPLES here , does not give these companies a free run to come here , profit from us , saying they are bringing in cutting edge technology , charge us a premium for these technologies ,

And when something goes wrong , then have advocates who say , we are a country of BAD APPLES

I am sorry but they cant seve us LEMONS

Just to add now even PORSCHE is under scruitny in the US , many new lawsuits have already being or are in the process of being filed against VW.
