    FAME Phase II Program saw the Launch of 50 Electric Buses in Delhi

    The government was informed that up to 50 electric buses had been introduced in Delhi with assistance from the FAME India Phase II scheme of the Ministry of Heavy Industries.
    The government granted Rs 10,000 crore for a three-year period in 2019 because of FAME. About 86 percent of the budgetary assistance total has been set aside for incentives to boost demand for electric vehicles.
    Mahendra Nath Pandey, the union minister for heavy industries, claimed that 3,538 electric buses have been ordered by the government. A total of 1,716 buses have been used thus far from those.

    In August 2019, 400 electric buses were approved for the Delhi Union Territory, with 300 going to the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) for in-city operations and 100 going to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) for last-mile connectivity.

    “The deadline for placing the supply orders was January 15, 2020. The selected bidders received a supply order from DMRC in December 2019, whereas Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) could only do so in March 2021. MHI extended the deadline for the supply order by DTC on March 31, 2021, as a unique circumstance for providing Delhi with a pollution-free, top-notch transport system “the Ministry of Heavy Industries states. According to the government, the pledge to provide 300 electric buses to DTC has been met with the introduction of 50 buses today.
