NGT rejects review plea against Mercedes on falsification of emission

The National Green Tribunal has junked a plea seeking a study of its order dismissing a petition claiming falsification of emission readings by car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. 

The NGT dismissed the plea saying that there is no tangible material to support there has been a violation of the law. The Chairperson Justice A K Goel said that the review application is an attempt for re-hearing, which is not permissible. The bench said, "It is submitted that there was a prospectus dated May 12, 2020, on the website of the German Federal Motor Transport Authority, KBA, indicting the company which by itself was enough for taking action. We do not find any ground to revisit the order." The NGT had refused to entertain the plea alleging falsification of emission readings by the company on October 19. The tribunal said “We find that neither the applicant claims to be a victim nor there is any material showing the loss suffered by the applicant. Nor he has shown his representative capacity to safeguard the rights of people who may not be able to directly take the remedy. In absence of adequate particulars, we do not find it appropriate to entertain this application."

The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by Tanuj Mittal alleging falsification of emission readings by Mercedes Benz. The case stated that as per the prospectus issued by the company in May, the installation of a cheat device in the engine and findings recorded by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority is mentioned.
