Action plan for clean transportation: report of the task force on clean transportation

A task force constituted by Niti Aayog on clean transportation has suggested removal of all permit requirements for electric vehicles (EVs) as they are environment friendly and the government needs to promote them. The report of the task force prepared jointly by Niti Aayog and CII also made a case for preparing a long term vision for intra-city electric buses. Task force proposes eliminating all permit requirements for electric vehicles in order to encourage electric mobility as getting and renewing permits every year is costly and time consuming. It would require a change in existing permit regime, at national and state level. Safety issues will need deliberation such that they do not impede the success of such intervention, the report said.
