From FAME scheme to Dedicated Freight Corridors and from High-Speed Regional Rails and e-Highways to PLI scheme for advanced cell chemistry battery storage, India is driving transformative mobility. The future of mobility should be shared, clean, convenient, connected & cutting-edge. It should be centred around public transport & clean vehicles. Transport systems should be sustainable – environmentally & financially. Electrification & Hydrogen will be game-changers.
About E-Amrit Portal
E-Amrit intends to complement initiatives of the government on raising awareness on EVs and sensitizing consumers on the benefits of switching to electric vehicles. In the recent past, India has taken many initiatives to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport and the adoption of electric mobility in the country. Schemes such as FAME and PLI are especially important in creating an ecosystem for the early adoption of EVs.
NITI Aayog intends to add more features and introduce innovative tools to make the portal more interactive and user-friendly.
