Updated September 18, 2018
The Indian government is rising up its efforts to push eco-friendly transportation in the country. The transport ministry has decided to do away with permits for electric vehicles and automobiles that run on alternative fuels.
On Friday 7th September, Nitin Gadkari, the transport minister of India said in a statement, “India has decided to exempt Electric Vehicles(EVs) and all other vehicles which include taxis, auto rickshaws, buses which run on alternative fuel like CNG, methanol, ethanol, biodiesel, and biofuel from permits.”
The transport minister addressed the Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) in New Delhi. This decision came after a consensus from a Group of Ministers of states which were headed by Yunus Khan, the transport minister of Rajasthan.
However, the countries union minister did not disclose any timeline or dates for implementing this decision.
State or Regional Transport Authority issues a permit which is used for a motor vehicle as a transport vehicle and applies to commercial vehicles. This move by the Indian government would help the owners save money as well as time.
