Ethical Dilemma Faced by General Motors India

Thomas Mathew

Abstract—This paper analyzes the ethical dilemma faced by General Motors India with relation to the regulatory norms imposed by the Government. The dilemma is mainly due to the aggressive sales intention of GM to achieve their strategic intent with relation to the problems faced to comply with the emission regulation norms. A shift in the approach from the “Utilitarian” view to the “Kantian” model helps GM India to resolve the huge product recall that was faced by GM India.

Index Terms—Ethical dilemma, GM India, Kantian model, utilitarian view.
