The Assam government has announced an electric vehicle (EV) strategy that would phase out fossil-fuel cars by 2030. Within the next five years, the objective calls for all government vehicles and the fleet of public buses to be converted to electric, as well as the deployment of 2 lakh electric cars. The strategy also provides a series of incentives to encourage individuals to convert to electric vehicles. These benefits include a complete waiver of registration and road tax. Electricity tariff exemptions of 90% have been promised to entrepreneurs who set up EV charging stations.

The government has set a goal for electric vehicles to account for 30% of new car and two-wheeler sales by 2030, up from less than 1% now. India has established efforts such as the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) and the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles in India (FAME India) to help build a sustainable EV ecosystem.
