  • FAME

    • The scheme, which was initially upto 31st April 2017, has been extended upto 31st March, 2019 or till Notification of FAME-II, whichever is earlier.
    • The total outlay of Phase-I of the FAME-India Scheme has been enhanced from Rs. 795 Crore to Rs. 895 Crore.
    • 100 % FDI by automatic route is permitted in the automobile sector. Further, the automobile sector is in the deregulated sector and both private sector and public sector are free to carry out investment in the automobile sector, including for manufacturing of Electric Vehicles and E-Buses.

    Cabinet approves Scheme for FAME India Phase II 

    • The scheme with total outlay of Rs 10000 Crores over the period of three years from 2019-20 to 2021-22, will be implemented with effect from 1st April 2019. This scheme is the expanded version of the present scheme titled ‘FAME India 1 which was launched on 1st April 2015, with total outlay of Rs. 895 crores.
  • NITI Aayog & RMI Release Technical Analysis of FAME II Scheme

    The NITI Aayog and the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) released a report on opportunities for the automobile sector and government under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles II (FAME II) scheme.

    • The technical report titled India’s Electric Mobility Transformation: Progress to Date and Future Opportunitiesquantifies the direct oil and carbon savings that the vehicles incentivized under FAME II will deliver. RMI is an Indian and global nonprofit organisation focused on driving the efficient and restorative use of resources.
    • India could achieve high penetration of electric vehicles (EV) by 2030 on the back of the success of FAME II and other measures

    “According to the analysis, if FAME II and other measures in public and private space – are successful, India could realiseEV sales penetration of 30 per cent of private cars, 70 per cent of commercial cars, 40 per cent of buses and 80 per centof two and three-wheelers by 2030,”

    Extrapolating from the same, the lifetime cumulative oil and carbon savings of all electric vehicles deployed through 2030 could be many-fold larger than the direct savings from FAME II.For example,achieving these levels of market share by 2030 could generate cumulative savings of 846million tonnes of CO2 over the total deployedvehicles’ lifetime.
