E-Amrit Portal

  • 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.
  • The portal has been developed and hosted by NITI Aayog under a collaborative knowledge exchange programme with the UK government.

Features of the portal

  • It intends to complement initiatives of the government on raising awareness about EVs.
  • It aims to sensitize consumers on the benefits of switching to electric vehicles.

Need for E-Amrit

  • In the recent past, India has taken many initiatives to accelerate the decarbonization 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.
