E-Amrit Portal on EVs

Part of: Prelims 

In News: India today launched ‘E-Amrit’, a web portal on electric vehicles (EVs), at the ongoing COP26 Summit in Glasgow, UK.

  • E-Amrit is a one-stop destination for all information on electric vehicles—busting myths around the adoption of EVs, their purchase, investment opportunities, policies, subsidies, etc.
  • E-Amrit intends to complement initiatives of the government on raising awareness on EVs and sensitizing consumers on the benefits of switching to electric vehicles. 

Background

  • In the recent past, India has taken many initiatives to accelerate the decarbonisation of transport and adoption of electric mobility in the country. 
  • Schemes such as FAME and PLI are especially important in creating an ecosystem for the early adoption of EVs.
  • NITI Aayog intends to add more features and introduce innovative tools to make the portal more interactive and user-friendly.
  • The portal has been developed and hosted by NITI Aayog under a collaborative knowledge exchange programme with the UK government and as part of the UK–India Joint Roadmap 2030, signed by the Prime Ministers of the two countries.
