A few months ago, the Odisha government amended the Odisha Electric Vehicle Policy, 2021, to increase the subsidy on the purchase of two-wheeler, three-wheeler and four-wheeler electric vehicles (EVs). The state had framed the EV policy in 2021 with an aim for adoption of 20 per cent electric vehicles by the end of 2025 as a measure of reduction of vehicular pollution. However, it was found that about 4.48 per cent of electric vehicles had been registered by the end of 2022 which is not satisfactory in comparison to the policy objective.
According to the amendment, the state will give a subsidy of Rs 10,000 per kilowatt hour with a maximum limit of Rs 1.5 lakh per one vehicle, for electric four wheelers. The incentive was flat Rs 50000 earlier. For three-wheelers, the government will give a flat subsidy of Rs 30,000.
Dr Amitabh Saran, Founder and CEO, Altigreen, said, “We are happy to partner with Jyote Motors in Bhubaneswar and deliver world-class products in multiple vehicle categories. With our expansion in the state of Odisha with this new retail experience center in Bhubaneswar, we are continuing with our commitment to building a strong nationwide network to ease the process of transition from ICE to EVs.
