Our Government is working hard to accelerate and promote the use of electric vehicles and is proposing plans such as FAMEI and FAME II to bring E-mobility in the country.

In addition, the Ministry of Heavy Industry has boosted the benefits on demand for electric vehicles based on FAME II by 50% for all the Electric two-wheelers in the country. Several states have taken steps by increasing state incentives on buying, selling, and owning an Electric Vehicle. This will help in the introduction and production of electric vehicles.
