Government of India launched the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP) 2020 in 2013.
To encourage reliable, affordable and efficient xEVs that meet consumer performance and price expectations through Government - Industry collaboration for promotion and development of indigenous manufacturing capabilities, required infrastructure, consumer awareness and technology; thereby helping India to emerge as a leader in the xEV Two Wheeler and Four Wheeler market in the world by 2020, with total xEV sales of 6-7 million units thus enabling Indian automotive Industry to achieve global xEV manufacturing leadership and contributing towards National Fuel Security.
There is an ambitious target to achieve 6-7 million sales of hybrid and electric vehicles year on year from 2020 onwards. Government aims to provide fiscal and monetary incentives to kick start this nascent technology. With the support from the Government, the cumulative sale is expected to reach 15-16 Million by 2020. It is expected to save 9500 Million Liters of crude oil equivalent to Rs. 62000 Cr. savings.
An enabling mechanism has been set up for speedier decision making and for ensuring greater collaboration amongst various stakeholders. This consists of empowered bodies at the apex level in the form of National Council for Electric Mobility (NCEM) and the National Board for Electric Mobility (NBEM).
The Council comprises of Ministers from the key Central Ministries/Departments, eminent representatives from the industry and academia. The NCEM is chaired by the Hon'ble Minister for Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises.
The Council will be aided by a 25 member National Board for Electric Mobility comprising of secretaries of stakeholder Central Ministries/Departments with representation from industry and academia.
The National Council and the National Board will be serviced initially by the NATRiP Implementation Society (NATIS) and later by the National Automotive Board (NAB).
It is a composite scheme using different policy-levers such as:
