The Indian government’s recent tweaking of the licensing policy for Electric Vehicles (EV) promises to address the infrastructure obstacle holding back the sector.
The setting up of EV charging stations by the government would no longer require a license from the Ministry, paving the way for the faster construction of these stations.
Earlier this year, Ola – the cab firm – initiated ‘Mission: Electric’ with plans to put 10,000 electric auto-rickshaws and e-rickshaws on Indian roads by 2019, a figure which is planned to mushroom to a million by 2021.
Will government policies put India’s EV market on the global map?
