The Supreme Court said on Monday that no coercive action will be taken against German auto major Volkswagen against whom the National Green Tribunal has imposed a fine of ₹ 500 crore for damaging the environment through use of "cheat device" in its diesel cars in India. A bench headed by Justice S A Bobde virtually stayed the imposition of fine for the time being against the multinational automobile company.

The apex green tribunal had on March 7 slapped a fine of ₹ 500 crore on Volkswagen and directed the car maker to deposit the amount within two months.
