    Breaking News : MV Act to be More Stringent

    NEW DELHI: For the first time, the government has decided to introduce strict penalties, including imprisonment and a fine of Rs 1 lakh on car manufacturers for faulty vehicle systems. A new provision would be included in the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 that would make car manufacturers liable for penalty in case of faults.

    The penalty would be a fine of Rs 1 lakh or imprisonment of up to three months or both. In case a consumer finds manufacturing faults with the brake system or engine or any other part, he would now be able to lodge a complaint with the state transport authority. The authority would get experts to investigate the fault and then recommend action. The provision , which will be included as Section 182 A in the Motor Vehicle Act , has been included after a spate of complaints from consumers and recent instances of car recall by manufacturers ...

  9. "Honda, Hyundai, Volkswagen come under CCI scanner"


    Finally the CCI (Competitive Commission of India) is investigating anticompetitive practices of car manufacturers that don't sell their parts outside of their dealership networks and force car owners to pay high prices for car maintenance.


    http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/new ... 702231.cms

    NEW DELHI: International car makers, Honda, Hyundai and Volkswagen, have come under the scanner of the competition watchdog CCI for abusing their dominant market position by selling auto parts to customers at high prices.

    The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has asked its Director General (Investigations) to probe a consumer's complaint against the car makers, who allegedly abuse their dominant position by making available spare parts only through their authorised dealers, who in turn sell them on high rates.

    "This practice by the international car makers does not give the consumer a fair price advantage as he has no choice but to buy the spare parts from authorised dealers. Prima facie it makes a case and the DG has been ordered to probe the matter further," an official told PTI.

    The DG has been asked to submit his report on the findings within 45 days.

    While Hyundai Motors denied having received any communication from the CCI, emails sent to Volkswagen and Honda remained unanswered.

    Normally, auto spare parts from Indian car makers are available with any retailer, not necessarily authorised, but the case is not the same with international car makers.

    Consumers are stuck after having bought a car from the international car makers, according to the complainant, who filed the case under section 4 of the Competition Act, 2002.

    The Commission, which became fully functional in 2009, with the appointment of a chairman and six members, at present has the power to check anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominant position, drawn from Sections 3 and 4 of the Competition Act, 2002.

    Beginning June, 2011, the Commission will also have the powers to check high-voltage mergers and acquisitions.
