The Union cabinet on Thursday approved the proposal for implementation of scheme titled ‘Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles in India Phase II (FAME II)’ for promotion of Electric Mobility in the country.
Appreciating the move of the Government Dr Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra & Mahindra in a statement said that “We applaud the approval of FAME II scheme by the Union Cabinet. The new outlay of Rs 10,000 crore over a period of three years provides a stable policy to promote green mobility in India.”
Thank you GoI for approving FAME II scheme. Government now has done what they had to do. It is now for suppliers, OEMs, mobility service providers to make Electric Vehicles a reality. We have no excuse left now.— Pawan K Goenka (@GoenkaPk) February 28, 2019
He added “It addresses the key issues including National Energy Security, Mitigation of the adverse impact of vehicles on the environment and Growth of domestic technology and manufacturing capabilities. The revised FAME II removes all the uncertainty and will put Electric Vehicles in the fast lane. Mahindra supports the Central Government’s focus to boost EVs in public transportation and now requests local authorities to help facilitate plying of electric vehicles on Indian roads.”
Goenka further added, “Government support with the FAME II scheme is holistic and includes focus on charging Infrastructure with a clear emphasis on “Make in India”. We feel that it is now the responsibility of suppliers, OEMs and mobility service providers to invest in EVs and make India’s EV dream become a reality.”
