AdvertisementPublic policy think tank Niti Aayog, on Friday, announced the launch of a mobile application called E-AMRIT to raise awareness of electric mobility. Besides this, the company also launched a report on the Advanced Chemistry Cell Battery Reuse and Recycling Market in India.
E-AMRIT — which stands for Accelerated e-Mobility Revolution for India's Transportation — will be available to download from the Google Play store. The app offers users key information like engagement tools that enable them to access the benefits of electric vehicles (EVs) and determine savings.
The app also provides all information on the latest developments in the Indian EV market.
The E-AMRIT mobile app is an updated version of the e-Amrit, a web portal for EVs, launched last year at COP26 Summit in the United Kingdom's Glasgow. The website also offered information about the adoption of EVs, their purchase, investment opportunities, policies and subsidies, among other things.
"India is the fifth largest and fastest growing vehicle market in the world, providing massive potential for electric vehicle uptake. The shift to Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) is well underway and accelerating, creating 100,000s of new e-mobility jobs, driving down technology costs, ensuring the air we breathe is cleaner and reducing our reliance on imported fuels," Alok Sharma, COP26 President highlighted, speaking during the launch.
India is among 42 leaders to back and sign up for the UK's Glasgow Breakthroughs, launched at the COP26 climate summit. India is also the co-convener of the Glasgow Breakthrough on Road Transport, along with the UK and the US.
The Breakthrough on Road Transport aims to make Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) — like two and three-wheelers, cars, vans, and heavy-duty vehicles — more affordable, accessible and sustainable in all regions by 2030.
