News Description :
In what may come as a breather for the automobile sector, the transport ministry will not set any deadline for transition to electric vehicles, Union minister of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari said. Responding to a question on the Niti Aayog’s draft guidelines that set a timeline for phasing out ICE-vehicles and transitioning to electric vehicles, Gadkari said that his ministry has not proposed any deadline for the same.
“We will not set any deadline for electric mobility. You see a lot of State governments are procuring electric buses, the transition will happen as a natural process,” Gadkari said on the sidelines of a press meet here on Wednesday.
