In order to promote manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicle technology and to ensure sustainable growth of the same, Department of Heavy Industry is implementing FAME-India Scheme.
The Phase-II of the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME-India) Scheme proposes to give a push to electric vehicles (EVs) in public transport and seeks to encourage adoption of EVs by way of market creation and demand aggregation. The draft scheme envisages the holistic growth of EV industry, including providing for charging infrastructure, research and development of EV technologies and push towards greater indigenisation.
Under Demand Creation focus area, the purchaser of electric and hybrid vehicles is given an upfront reduction in purchase price by the dealer at the time of purchase of EVs.
1. subsidy allocation has been increased to Rs. 10,000 crore and it is going to be a big boost for the electric vehicle segment in India.
2. In the FAME II scheme, the electric cars including private and commercial which are priced below Rs. 15 lakh will get Rs. 1.5 lakh as a subsidy but there is a catch that subsidy will be only available for cars that are manufactured in India. The government took this decision to boost electric vehicle manufacturing in India and it will improve the economy also.
3.The government will give Rs. 20,000 as a subsidy for electric two-wheelers below Rs. 1.5 lakh and Rs. 50,000 for electric three-wheelers priced below Rs. 5 lakh #fameii #electricvehicle #fameindia #india #indiangovt #fameiischeme #subsidy #twowheelers #evtwowheelers
