Aakash Minda, Executive Director, Minda Corporation Limited says, “The transition of the sector towards electric vehicles needs special focus. To build an upward tick within the EV market, Government Schemes should strengthen the indigenous EV industry. The focus must be on providing incentives and schemes to aggressively build a robust ecosystem that supports the infrastructure, supply chains and material required for growth. This will ensure Indias participation in contributing to EV revolution in Indian as well across global markets.”

We urge the Government to consider incentivising the journey of ‘electronification‘ by rationalising the GST rate for auto components. While EVs are priced with a 5% GST, component manufacturers are currently mandated to pay GST of 18% to 28%. We are hoping for a tax standardization that will help the component manufacturers scale up and strengthen to provide parts and consistent quality and reduce litigations.”

We are excited to see how the budget will supplement the Faster Adoption of Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles Scheme – II (FAME-II). With its budgetary outlay of INR 10,000 crore, it is currently only effective till March 2024. We are keen to see the how the budget unfolds for the automotive sector. Further, the auto component industry keenly awaits further additions to Advanced Automotive Products (AAP) list under PLI scheme covering connection systems for BS VI and EV products, Antennas, Driver Information Clusters and Sensors,” he added.
