The Indian Government seems to be taking the right steps to curb pollution in the country, in addition, to reduce the dependence on conventional sources of fuel. The Union Budget 2019, which did not bring much relief for conventional car manufacturers, had announcements in favour of the EVs in India.

Now the GOI has invited entities from different backgrounds to submit proposals on the set-up of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the country. This will be done in million-plus cities as well as smart cities, as mentioned by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs and the Ministry of Heavy Industries.

Measures undertaken
In addition, the Government also seeks proposals from areas that are connected to major metros such as Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Ahmedabad. Also from other special category states, UTs as well as capital cities of all the states of India and UTs that are not included in the above category.
