The Indian government has announced grants worth Rs 1.05 billion to smart cities for purchasing electric vehicles (EVs) and developing charging infrastructure. Cities with populations greater than 1 million are eligible for this. The vehicles will be used for mass transportation for a pilot project under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles in India (FAME) programme. The Department of Heavy Industry has already issued a notice inviting EoIs from state government departments, undertakings, municipal corporations and public authorities for innovative proposals that involve multimodal public transportation based on a purely electric power train. The funds can be used for procuring electric buses (Rs 10 million-Rs 15 million per bus), electric four-wheeler cars (Rs 76,000-Rs 138,000 per car), and electric three-wheelers (Rs 37,000-Rs 61,000 per three-wheeler).
