We have entered in 2021. Finance Minister of India Hon’ble Nirmala Sitharaman has already declared Union budget for 2021 but nothing have declared about EV industry.
Let’s have a recap on statewide EV policies in India to have glance what we still have to achieve
India has shown remarkable transformation in the EV industry and successfully survived the covid 19 impacts with 20% growth in EV sales during the lockdown.
Under the National Electric Mobility Mission(NEMM), 14 states in India have committed for the adoption of E-mobility. Though the policies of respective states differ in terms of targets, investments, supply-side incentives (manufacturing), demand-side incentives (consumer and charging infrastructure investments), all the states have focused on two-wheelers, three-wheelers, public transportation, and creating jobs.
