India To Become E-Vehicles Manufacturing Hub: Gadkari Backs ‘Swadeshi’

New Delhi: Nitin Gadkari backed efforts helping India increase ‘swadeshi’ production and said that India’s automotive sector has been increasingly becoming self-reliant.

During a virtual programme organised by the Swadeshi Jagran Manch, he made such claims, on Sunday.

“I feel imports need to end and exports should be increased through the promotion of import-substitute goods,” said union minister, adding that alternative fuel economy worth Rs 5 lakh crore might be created with rural participation.

Gadkari claimed that India is on the verge of becoming one of the most significant manufacturer of electric vehicles.

The Road Transport, Highways and MSMEs Minister claimed that India can become the world’s largest e-vehicle manufacturing hub in the next five years with products ranging from two-wheelers, three-wheelers and cars to construction equipment.

Gadkari had urged manufacturers to construct flex-engines to promote alternative fuel.

“Government has taken a decision that the companies with a worth of more than 250 crore can start their own petrol/diesels pumps but the condition is that they should have alternative fuel pumps also”, he said.

“We are going to increase the production of biofuel given (there is) surplus food grains. I request you all (car makers) to bring in flex-engine technology which is a proven technology and already your brand companies are using all these technologies in Brazil, in USA and in Canada”, added further.
