On Wednesday, India unveiled the ‘E-Amrit‘ web platform on electric vehicles (EVs) at the COP26 Summit in Glasgow. According to a government release, the website offers a one-stop-shop for all information on electric vehicles.
The E-Amrit portal offers information about debunking myths about electric vehicles, as well as their purchasing, investment prospects, policies, and incentives.
NITI Aayog created and hosts the portal as part of a joint knowledge exchange effort with the UK government and the UK-India Joint Roadmap 2030. The roadmap was signed by the two countries’ prime leaders.
According to NITI Aayog, the E-Amrit platform would support government efforts to raise awareness about EVs and educate customers about the benefits of converting to electric mobility.
India has recently taken a number of steps to hasten the decarbonization of transportation and the adoption of electric mobility in the country. FAME and PLI are particularly crucial in establishing an environment for the early uptake of electric vehicles.
To make the platform more interactive and user-friendly, NITI Aayog plans to add new features and bring novel technologies.
Nigel Topping, the UK’s High-Level Climate Action Champion, and Sudhendu Jyoti Sinha, an NITI Aayog Adviser, were in attendance at the launch.
