  • All BS and crap, Modi is the most self centric leader as we can get in India. India is just waking up and 5-10yrs late in the game. Modi is always bothered about his state Gujarat so until some Gujju wakes up there is no one to lead Modi by his hand. Gadkari is a mouth piece, when CBN was putting a policy in place 4yrs ago these very same leaders (Modi and Gadkari) opposed because Ambani wanted a deal with Saudi Aramco and supported oil.

  • When we were kids, we want to be the "astronauts". We want to be "scientists" We want to be "doctors." This is cute! But that is about it. You "want to be" something does not means you will be something if you don't ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Indians just keep talking about "want to be" #1 this and #1 that, global hub this and global hub that. It has NO MEANING. You need to make it happen 60% of the way BEFORE you actually say something like that. Just like a a child can say "I want to be a astronaut." It is cute! But unless you are already a pilot or a doctor, your "want" is just cute.

  • people will not buy a lot of ev without a proper charging station network throughout the nation, we need to work on that too, that way we can leverage the tax cut move made earlier and there will be manifolds increase in ev purchase also, more adoption of ev means more consumption of electricity hence increase in demand for power, ergo we might need to improve our production capacity of electricity too; very rapidly

  • India is nowhere in the top 10 lithium reserves or top 10 lithium batteries exporting nations. Electric cars in India are typically twice as expensive as equivalent internal combustion counterparts. Most states do not give ny incentive to EVs. I bought a Reva-i from Mahindra in 2011. 2012 they stopped production and removed all websites or supporting websites for spares for this car. We do have have technology... The will is missing ... in politicians and established manufacturers. And people are blissfully ignorant of the strides that Battery electric vehicles or hydrogen fuel cells have made in other countries.

  • Yes agreed. Lithium is very important for the development of ev batteries. But also equally important if not more are the policies and infrastructure by the govt. The public transportation system still uses the same old smoking engine which holds a large percentage of pollution. Charging stations are rare. The only existing policy fame 2 is also very shady. There are many unique indian startups like log9 (aluminium air batteries) nexus (battery made from crop residue) these batteries do not need lithium and their energy density is far better almost comparable to petrol fuel tanks. The govt should lift and promote them. At last when Nitin Ji gave that speech. He only gave some blank compliments and hope without any actual support from the govt. India has many hidden gems, be it batteries, ev manufacturers or charging solutions. The govt. should give this sector a little more priority.

Also where is the plan for the support infrastructure like battery guidelines for swap stations and charging station guidelines so that private players can start investing in the same tech...
