NITI Aayog, which is India’s policy making body/think tank organisation, has drafted a policy for electric vehicles and has suggested that EVs could have green number plates. Along with that, the draft policy also suggests that EVs could be given benefits such as free parking for three years and tolls waived off across the country. Another point that the draft policy makes is that there should be 10 per cent parking space reserved for electric vehicles at residential spaces, shopping malls and office complexes in the future.
The study also happened to mention that if India were to take electrification of the fleet seriously, it stands to save about 64 per cent of the energy demand for road transport and 37 per cent carbon emissions by 2030.
