The Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) team headed by Director Dr Reji Mathai on Saturday visited Hyderabad to establish pre-certification lab in Telangana. The team was received by the Director of Electronics, EV and ESS Sujai Karampuri and other officials from the department of ITE&C.
Sujai Karampuri briefed the team about the existing ecosystem of Telangana which included a presentation on T-Works, the country’s largest prototyping lab at Raidurg which was followed by an interaction with company representatives from the EV industry of Telangana. The Department of ITE&C and ARAI had entered into an MoU last year and since then the teams are in discussion on the way forward.
Dr Mathai added that Telangana is an emerging destination for EV and Automotive industry. They would be looking forward to starting the ARAI regional centre in Telangana and feel that it will certainly add a lot of value to the existing industry and also make a good value proposition for companies to explore Telangana for setting up new units.
Sujai Karampuri said that the launch of EV and ESS policy last year has increased the interest amongst EV and ESS manufacturers to explore Telangana as a manufacturing destination. ARAI setting up a pre-certification lab in Telangana would certainly give a much-needed boost to the existing ecosystem.
