General Motors under the watch of regulators in India

  • The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in India says a panel will track the recall of 114K Chevrolet Tavera SUVs to ensure that emission testing is addressed properly.
  • The automaker suspended production of the model last summer amid accusations that employees of GM India (GM) faked emission test results.

    India would be well within reason to station a state emissions official at each site where recall maintenance will be performed and charge the equivalent of a $1,000 or more per-vehicle remediation oversight fee given the shenanigans GM tried to perpetrate.

     

    Failing wasn't bad enough. GM resorted to latent cheating in the worst of all places, where the legacy of U.S. multinationals' previous impact upon the Indian environment and people hangs thick to this day.

    Union Carbide?

     

    Don't you think such comparisons are a bit extreme.

     

    Product recall/quality/compliance issues don't compare well to an industrial accident. Especially where sabotage was likely involved.
