The government is concentrating on a scheme that would allow consumers to acquire electric cars on zero down transaction and individuals can certainly pay for it out of savings on petroleum products and solutions.
“Innovation is achievable, it merely needs an open mind. You require to think about scale and be truthful. We do not need one rupee assistance from the government. We don’t require one rupee financial commitment from the people of India,” he included.
