The aim of the mission is to drive strategies for transformative mobility and Phased Manufacturing Programmes for electric vehicles, electric vehicle Components and Batteries. Following are the key roles, roadmap and anticipated impact envisaged under the mission: Role: Drive strategies for transformative mobility and Phased Manufacturing Programmes for electric vehicles, electric vehicle Components and Batteries Creating a Phased Manufacturing Program (PMP) to localize production across the entire electric vehicle value chain Details of localization will be finalized by the Mission with a clear Make in India strategy for the electric vehicle components as well as battery The Mission will coordinate with key stakeholders in Ministries/ Departments/states to integrate various initiatives to transform mobility in India
To boost electric mobility and promote development of electric vehicles, a phased manufacturing roadmap has been developed, taking into account the current state of the manufacturing ecosystem in the country, in which indigenous manufacturing of electric vehicles, their assemblies/sub-assemblies, and parts/sub-parts/inputs of the sub-assemblies will be promoted over time through a graded duty structure. The goal is to significantly boost value addition and capacity building in the country.
FAME, or Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric vehicles, is currently India’s flagship scheme for promoting electric mobility. It was launched by DHI in 2015. Currently in its 2nd phase of implementation, FAME-II is being implemented for a period of 3 years, eff. 1st April 2019 with a budget allocation of 10,000 Cr which includes a spillover from FAME-I of Rs 366 Cr. The incentives offered in the scheme are:
