However, the central government has announced the second phase of its ambitious FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing (Hybrid) and Electric Vehicles) policy, which aims to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in all market segments in the country.
According to NitiAayog, by 2030, India’s electric vehicle industry may accumulatively increase by about US$300 billion, while accelerating the popularity of electric vehicles, electric scooters, electric motorcycles and electric buses in the country.
