Pollution worries have led the Government to form a committee which will feature the automobile industry experts and government officials.
The sole purpose of the committee will be to monitor the development of technology for manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicles.
The initiative will also help to boost the 'Make in India' movement and eventually lead to having more environment-friendly vehicles on the public roads.
Mahindra's electric division, Reva, is a popular name among the electric vehicle manufacturers in India. However, the major challenge is when the manufacturer has to import the components such as the battery and motor.
The panel for Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles in India (FAME), will be working along with the manufacturers to help them set up charging points throughout the country.
In addition, the government will also encourage the utilisation of electric/hybrid vehicles under the FAME scheme.
The committee will also be monitoring the work of the Government's own Technology Platform for Electric Mobility (TPEM), which was set up earlier to develop green technologies.
