NITI Aayog's EV Push

A US$1 bn fund may soon be launched by the government in collaboration with the World Bank, and the Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI). The fund will be used to provide guarantees against defaults on loans taken to buy electric two or three-wheelers.

The NITI Aayog will be the facilitating agency of the project. It will aim to facilitate faster and easier financing of EVs.

The instrument would act as a hedging mechanism, for banks to access in case of defaults of loans on purchase of the electric vehicle. This is expected to bring down the cost of financing EVs by 10-12%.

Currently, loans for electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers attract 20-25 per cent interest per annum.

Earlier, the State Bank of India (SBI) was the program lead. However, it withdrew from the deal after due diligence.

Banks have continued to stay cautious about financing EVs after losing money on e-rickshaws and other EVs powered by lead-acid batteries. Even as banks have maintained their distance from financing such vehicles, several NBFCs have come forward to take the role.

In FY23, EV sales in India are expected to cross a million units, an 84% rise year-on-year.

India to Ramp Up Grid-Scale Batteries

India's power ministry is proposing a nearly US$2.5 bn incentive plan to encourage domestic manufacturing of grid-scale batteries, aiming at bringing down the cost of energy storage to speed up its energy transition.

There are early-stage discussions in the government about offering incentives to manufacturers for batteries they produce over a certain time. The total payout could be in the realm of 200 bn rupees.

Worried over rival China's dominance in lithium, the nation is in talks with countries, including Australia, to secure supplies of the battery metal. India also plans to promote other battery technologies.
