Fast Facts: FAME India Scheme
FAME India essentially is part of the country’s National Electric Mobility Mission Plan which aims to encourage adoption of electric vehicles – mild hybrid, strong hybrid, plug-in hybrids and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) through provision of subsides across all vehicle segments. It has two phases – Phase 1 began in 2015 and ended on March 31, 2019. Phase 2, set for a three-year period till end-March 2022, was given a two-year extension till end-March 2024.
There are four focus areas for the FAME India Scheme: Technology development, demand creation, pilot projects and setting up charging infrastructure.
