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.
