New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Wednesday directed Volkswagen to give an undertaking by January 11 that it would not sell any vehicle in India fitted with "cheat device".
The auto maker has been found to have deployed this device to cheat on emission tests in cars sold in various countries, including the US where it faces a fine of up to USD18 billion.
VW has already admitted that 11 million diesel engine cars worldwide were fitted with the software that helped manipulate emission tests.
In December, Volkswagen had recalled over a 3 lakh of its Indian vehicles after allegations that its cars have a emission "defeat device", the charges which the company denied.
