Comparative evaluation of non-fiscal incentives to promote electric vehicles across Indian states and union territories

To support the national-level push for electric mobility, many Indian states and union territories have established or are developing their own electric vehicle (EV) policies. This is important because state EV incentives can play a key role in EV market development by complementing national promotion efforts and by serving as a bridge between national- and state-level policies. This paper reviews non-fiscal incentives proposed and adopted in Indian states’ EV policies. It is focused on consumers, and the authors review incentives for EV consumers while they are driving their vehicles and support for charging infrastructure installation.
