The National Green Tribunal has refused to entertain a plea alleging falsification of emission readings by manufacturers of Mercedes-Benz car saying there is no tangible material to support the violation of law.

“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 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," a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said.
