The Minister of State for Heavy Industries promised all support to the auto industry on policy matters to ensure the smooth and efficient transformation of the automotive industry from internal combustion (IC) to the electric powertrain.

He informed that three lakh electric vehicles have already been sold under the FAME India Scheme.

The minister said a provision of Rs 10,000 crore has been made for electric mobility in the Union Budget for 2019-20.
