At the present COP26 Summit in Glasgow, the Central government launched ‘E-Amrit,’ an online portal on electric vehicles (EVs). E-Amrit, according to a statement released by the NITI Aayog on Wednesday, is a one-stop destination for all information about electric vehicles, including shattering misconceptions about their adoption, purchase, investment possibilities, laws, and subsidies.
“The portal was built and hosted by NITI Aayog as part of a collaborative knowledge exchange initiative with the UK government and as part of the UK-India Joint Roadmap 2030, agreed by the two nations’ Prime Ministers,” according to the announcement.
E-Amrit aims to support government activities aimed at promoting EV awareness and informing customers about the advantages of converting to electric cars. India has recently made a number of steps to speed transportation decarbonization and the adoption of electric mobility in the nation. FAME and PLI are particularly crucial in establishing an environment for the early adoption of electric vehicles.
To make the platform more interactive and user-friendly, NITI Aayog plans to add new features and bring innovative technologies.
Nigel Topping, the UK’s High-Level Climate Action Champion, and Sudhendu Jyoti Sinha, an NITI Aayog Adviser, were in attendance at the event.
