We welcome the mobility for all approach via one nation one card initiate for public transportation.
The incentivisation provided for e-vehicles, including the proposal to lower GST and providing tax relief to end-users are good moves.
Additionally, steps towards making India an attractive manufacturing destination for solar photovoltaic, Li-ion storage and solar electric charging are welcome.
The success of this will depend on how we go about the deployment of charging infrastructure and how the components of FAME2 pan out.
The IET’s Urban Mobility Panel looks forward to contributing towards these initiatives in 2019-2020.
