e-AMRIT– Accelerated e-Mobility Revolution for India's Transportation

e-AMRIT is a one-stop portal for creating awareness about electric mobility through Electric Vehicles (EVs) in India. The portal aims to ease the transition from fossil fuel driven vehicles to electric vehicles by providing all information about policies, incentives, charging stations, business requirements. Electric vehicles provide a range of benefits from environmental to economical over conventional vehicles. There are multiple types of electric vehicles offered in the market. Availability of affordable credit is essential for the adoption of electric vehicles. Myths lead to slower adoption of electric vehicles. This is an attempt to create awareness about the benefits of EVs, share information about the various types of EVs available in India, bust the myths surrounding their use, and also to share details of financing options, thereby helping the move towards a cleaner, greener, economical option.
