Very inspiring article for all those who want to see a reformative change in their country. Prime Minister and his new team has given us hope and confidence that “New India” will bring vast positive changes all across. India already has a Mature Domestic Auto Industry, New ministerial team is announcing incentives, re-drawing new roles for public sector Industries to play a more decisive role in fast changing technology driven world, allowing entrepreneurs to be innovative, creative and actively participate in building new age industries, businesses. Electrifying all kinds of vehicles will be a major Plunge to modernize our decade old, shabby rickety Transport system. We may witness Modern New Buses run on Clean fuel running in cities and highways, speedier, low noise pollution free autos, Taxis in our cities, gradual replacement of oil stations with Electric charging stations, Job creating in service and auto sector, opportunity for startups, a reduction of transportation cost for Businesses. This may require that we intensify and double our efforts to train, re-retain our workforce to meet changing demands, calibratate our courses to align with new requirments.


it is very opportunity for vehicle manufacturer to grab market share from Maruti if they come up with true value for money EV. It will be a disruptive move


Where is the infrastructure for charging in the country !On an average it takes around 7 to 10 mins for a car to get a full tank ! bikes take around 3 to 5 minutes for full tank !Has the technology evolved for fast recharging ?
