Things to Know About E-Amrit Portal: NITI Aayog’s EV Related Website

To raise awareness about electric vehicles and to streamline their sales in the country, NITI Aayog has launched a portal in the country which is all about electric vehicles

At the recently held COP26 Summit in Glasgow, United Kingdom; NITI Aayog launched a portal by the name of E-Amrit. The E-Amrit portal is a government portal that has been launched to raise awareness about electric vehicles. Through the portal, one can get various information about the existing electric vehicles. Important information such as cost, subsidies, policies, government programmes and more are also now available for the general masses on the newly-launched portal. 

The portal is created and handled by the NITI Aayog in a collaboration with the UK government’s knowledge exchange program, which was signed by the Prime Ministers of the two nations. For the unversed souls, the program is an important part of the UK-India Joint Roadmap 2030. 

On reaching the portal, a viewer is welcomed with live data such as electric vehicles registered to date in India, states with electric vehicle policies, total electric vehicle manufacturers in India, number of EV charging stations in the country, electric vehicles sales between FY15 and FY20, kilograms of CO2 reduced under FAME I and FAME II and the percentage of electric vehicle sold in a single year (1.32 per cent in FY21-22).  

That is not all because the portal also allows a user to access several other information such as: 

Benefits of EVs, busting common electric vehicle myths, types of EVs, financing options, insurance options, electric vehicle incentives, business models, manufacturers, service providers, new E-mobility businesses, charging station locator, national-level policies, state-level policies, and electricity cost for charging. 

For those who are interested in buying an electric vehicle, there is a calculation tool using which the individuals can get information such as mileage of the vehicle and cost of the vehicle. There are several other options (tools) available for users, such as a home charging calculator, public charging calculator, and journey cost calculator. 

The portal also shares recent news and developments in the electric vehicles’ industry of India, along with important tweets made by the NITI Aayog and other government offices such as MoRTH. Last but not the least, India as a country aims to create an EV market worth INR 14.42 crore and by 2030, most of the vehicles in the country will be electric.
