It is evident that pollution is causing irreparable harm to the environment. One major factor contributing to pollution is transportation, as this is entirely dependent on Non-Renewable energy sources. India has realised this problem and has introduced great plans to increase the usage of Electric Vehicles (EV). The plan is to Encourage the manufacturing and use of EVs, Establish the required Infrastructure and Educate the citizens. All this is to be achieved by the FAME ( faster adoption and manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicles) scheme in India.

FAME is an incentive scheme for adoption and manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicles in India. Electric vehicle manufacturers and infrastructure providers receive subsidies as part of this incentive. The Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises announced the Fame India scheme as part of the National Electric Mobility Mission Plan.

Phases for implementation of FAME Scheme  

1. Phase-1 started in 2015 and was functional till 31st March 2019.

2. Phase-2 started in April 2019 and was supposed to continue till 31st March 2022.

But the Government has recently extended this program till 31st march 2024

Now that we Know EVs are the future of transportation and the government is already taking required steps to encourage it. The Indian automotive industry is growing rapidly and domestic original equipment manufacturers(OEM) are shining like stars globally with cutting edge technology and aggressive growth plan. All this has been made possible because of the various subsides available to the OEMs through FAME scheme. OEMs can claim demand Incentive under FAME-II.
