Mahindra diesel vehicles recalled

In a regulatory filing, Mahindra issued a recall for around 600 diesel vehicles that were manufactured at its plant in Nashik, Maharashtra. The company stated that the factory received contaminated diesel fuel, which was filled in these 600-odd vehicles; this is suspected to cause wear on certain parts of the diesel engine.

However, the company did not mention which models or which diesel engines have been affected by this recall.
