Electric three-wheelers and two-wheelers (under 150cc) are likely to become mandatory by April 2023 and April 2025, respectively. These radical proposals of an expert panel, Times of India reports, are aimed at curbing vehicular pollution, reducing dependence on oil and making India a global EV manufacturing hub. Vehicles registered before the cut-off dates won’t be impacted but they will face a clear scrapping policy, along with penalties based on the “polluter pays” principle. Indians purchase over 2 crore two-wheelers every year, which together with autos and other three-wheelers make up 75% of the country’s traffic.
