HIGHLIGHTS

  • From April 2023, the government will mandate the selling of only electric three-wheeler vehicles
  • The vehicles need to be powered by electricity by the year 2025
  • The move aims to reduce the pollution of air

The move by the central government aims to reduce air pollution also signifies a faster transformation towards electric vehicles thereby doing away with fuels that produce harmful and toxic gases.  The government has made its plan clear to implement the sale of only electric three-wheelers from the month of April 2023 and only electric two-wheelers by 2025. These recommendations are made by the higher level of a government panel. The two-wheelers on the Indian roads amount to almost 66.67% of traffic. Almost 2 crore units of two-wheelers are sold annually. The move to give 6 years for enforcing the mandate also comes to help the automobile industry in reviving its investment after giving away a large amount of money to produce BS-VI compliant vehicles.

Also, the fuel efficiency norms will be made stricter. The charge to register the petrol and diesel vehicles will also see an upward trend in the coming six years. Concessions and subsidies for the electric three-wheelers will be provided and even doubled to bring down their prices.  The subsidy amount as planned by the central government is aimed at Rs 20,000. Nitin Gadkari the highway and transport minister in the year 2017 made a big statement when he expressed the move to shift to the alternate fuel. The entire automobile industry across the country was baffled by this statement.
