The Tata Nano has had its fair share of problems, but the difficulties experienced by one owner could result in a six month jail sentence for managing director Karl Slym.

The details are vague, but the Chandigarh consumer redressal commission has reportedly fined Slym 10,000 rupees ($185 / €141) and sentenced him to six months in jail for failing to replace faulty components on a new Nano.

When asked about the situation, a Tata Motors spokesperson told CNBC-TV18 that they are reviewing the commission's order and will take the appropriate action. The spokesperson also said the company repaired the car in question and even offered to compensate the owner but they didn't receive any cooperation from the individual.
