Summary

In February 2007 the Italian NCP received a request for review from a trade union alleging that an Indian multinational enterprise had breached the general policies and environment provisions of the Guidelines in India through its construction of an automobile manufacturing plant on fertile land that would deprive thousands of residents of an important source of income. This plant was allegedly to be built in co-operation with an Italian multinational enterprise in the same sector.

The initial assessment of the specific instance led to the rejection of the request as there was no involvement of the Italian firm in the construction of the plant.
