Government planning on new policies to promote EV’s in India

Government planning on new policies to promote EV’s in India

There have been plenty of talks by the government and manufacturers to bring in EV’s on Indian roads as soon as possible, however without the right infrastructure, the EV dream seems far from possible. As a result, the government is planning new policies for the promotion of EV’s.

While the exact plans aren’t out yet, the policies advocating minimal subsidies will be announced at a global e-mobility summit to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on September 7. The plan is to create favourable ecosystems in the nine most polluted cities and then gradually move on to other cities. 

The government could also consider throwing a 100-day global challenge to automakers for setting up manufacturing facilities for e-vehicles, batteries and charging infrastructure in India. In February this year, Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari had announced that the government has dropped plans to prepare a separate policy for electric mobility. 

The timelines and the roadmap for the policy are being identified and the power ministry is close to finalising a policy for electric vehicles charging infrastructure that proposes granting subsidies for setting up a basic charging station network in big cities and highways for gaining momentum in electric vehicle sales.
