Subsidies on electric vehicles increased
To accelerate the adoption of low-polluting vehicles in India, the Government of India has more than tripled the central budgetary allocation for subsidies on the purchase of electric vehicles. According to the budget document, the subsidy under Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) for the financial year 2023 has been increased from Rs 800 crore to Rs 2,908 crore, which is three and a half times more than the previous budgetary allocation. .
The government has increased the incentive amount for electric two wheelers from Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 per kWh. Also, the incentive limit has been increased from 20% to 40% of the vehicle cost. According to the Union Budget, the total expenditure of the central government under the FAME policy has been fixed at Rs 4,671 crore between the financial years 2019 to 2023.
Under the FAME-II scheme, about 2,00,000 vehicles have been given the benefit of subsidy. In the last three financial years, a total subsidy of Rs 900 crore has been availed for electric two wheelers and three wheelers.
