This is totally bizarre. The wear and tear of clutch linked to ecm theory is there to do away with the responsibility. What I think is they had removed the clutch while diagnosis of the issue. The mechanic might have handled the clutch in a wrong manner. I will call my friend in chandigarh who is a service manager at vw chandigarh and would describe your problem. I will post with the reply by Monday evening.
Please be stern and do not accept the car in current state.

Thanks a lot Sunil. They had brought the car yesterday. The clutch was better than before but it was not at all like this when I gave it to them 3 weeks back. Initially service manager said clutch can't be manipulated manually to a different position. He said all Volkswagen cars have clutch in varying position when it gets older and that is why the service people couldn't diagnose the clutch problem. But yesterday he did bleeding of the clutch and changed the oil without even asking me. After that the position became better.! This what he said yesterday. Earlier he said there is more wear to clutch but later he changed his opinion that my clutch have wear and tear only to an extent of a car that has run 47k kms. He was not ready to accept the vehicle for this problem again. He said he will give a test drive of another polo to feel the difference. I asked for a written confirmation that my clutch is totally fine for which he agreed. Anyways I'm giving back the car tomorrow. In the mean time I'll be waiting for your reply too.

Did you changed it to Brembo? Howz the performance?

I have replaced my stock rotors twice in 30,000 kms and now its due for another change , as I could see the scoring in rotors and very very slight shuddering when brakes are applied on high speeds.

Would like to go for slotted Brembo rotors. Brake pads have been changed at service centre recently (2000 kms done in new pads)...Is it okay just to replace the rotors or advisable to opt Brembo rotors and pads combined

Sorry for the late reply, i have indeed changed to normal Brembo rotors and the red brembo pads and extremely happy with the upgrade. Have done 10k kms and there is no shuddering issue so far, the bite is better than stock and the brake dust is also less evident, the stock VW rotors are of utterly crap quality and start shuddering the moment you cross 8-9k kms.

Could you please share details of where you sourced these from and how much it costs? MY Vento has also started shuddering in high speed braking and I'm looking at switching to brembo kits.
