NEW DELHI: The recent Volkswagen corporate fraud has exposed gaps in emissions regulations in India and makes the country "extremely" vulnerable as it is "dieselizing" rapidly without the right norms and compliance framework for manufacturers, a green body said today.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) said that the Volkswagen fraud was one of the biggest corporate frauds in the global automobile industry which was unearthed recently when popular diesel car models of the company were found to be patched with 'defeat devices' wired to trick official emission tests in the US.
