Government to set up apex bodies on hybrid vehicles


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

In an effort to promote hybrid cars in the Indian markets, the government will set up two high-level bodies this week. These 2 bodies are:

• National Council for Electric Mobility (NCEM)
• National Board for Electric Mobility (NBEM)

The NCEM will be the apex body that will be headed by Heavy Industries Minister Praful Patel and the NBEM will act a junior body at grassroots levels.

Cabinet approval for the NCEM and NBEM has already been obtained. The aim of these bodies will be to formulate policies that will offer a direct or indirect subsidies for the manufacture of green vehicles.

What are you expectations from these forthcoming policies?
