NITI Aayog recommends only EV sale after 2030

In an ambitious move, the NITI Aayog has proposed that after 2030 only electric vehicles should be sold in the country. This will expand the scope of clean fuel technology beyond two-and three-wheelers, believes the Aayog.
A panel headed by NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant had earlier suggested that only EV (three-wheelers and two-wheelers) with engine capacity of up to 150 cc should be sold from 2025 onwards.
According to NITI Aayog, as transport remains the most demanding sector for oil, about 100 per cent electric vehicle sale by 2030 may reduce the country’s import dependence by a huge margin. 
A joint study by NITI Aayog and Rocky Mountain Institute, USA, has suggested that India can save 64 per cent of anticipated road-based mobility-related energy demand and 37 per cent of carbon emissions in 2030 by pursuing a shared, electric, and connected mobility future.
A report carried by a prominent national daily said the NITI Aayog has moved a Cabinet note, with different responsibility for different ministries. The Road Transport and Highways Ministry has been proposed to prepare a framework to phase out the sale of diesel and petrol vehicles by 2030. The ministry has also been asked to pilot an e-highways programme - with an overhead electricity network - to enable trucks and buses to operate as electric vehicles on select national highways. 
In electric highways, overhead electric cable is laid to allow trucks to operate as electric vehicles when on the electrified road and as regular hybrid vehicles at other times. 
The NITI Aayog's Cabinet proposal has also suggested that the Transport Ministry should issue some norms for cab aggregators to replace all diesel and petrol vehicles with EVs by 2030. Also, the Heavy Industries Ministry would replace all diesel/petrol vehicles with EVs of all Central ministries, agencies and public sector by 2030. 
As per the Government’s policy thin-tank, the barriers in wider adoption of electric vehicles lie in areas of consumer perception, efficiency of batteries, driving range, speed of EVs, charging time, creation of infrastructure for charging, battery recycling and technology development. The most important component - Li-Ion battery - is very expensive in the country due to no domestic manufacturing making the price of electric cars very high. 
It believes that delinking battery from vehicles through battery swapping could be a way forward, but it demands the creation of a smart infrastructure of swappable batteries with pay-per-use business models, an extensive swapping-station network, and integrated payment and tracking systems. 
In order to meet the target of setting up of the Giga-scale battery manufacturing, the Aayog has proposed financial incentives for the investors including cash subsidy on the basis of overall domestic value addition per kilowatt hour (KWh) basis.
