Citing the India Battery Manufacturing Vision, Mr Singhvi projected the creation of over 2.6 million jobs and a USD 35 billion investment by 2035. Highlighting the surge in EV sales in India as a cleaner and more efficient alternative, he emphasised the government's ambitious target of achieving 30% electrification of India’s vehicle fleet by 2030.
