Building Castles in the Air ?



Someone has said :

“ It is OK to build castles in the air , as long as you know how to put foundations underneath , later on “



THE  CASTLE [ GREEN  TRANSPORT ] :



·         Auto Mission Plan – 2016-26

India’s passenger vehicle market to grow from current 3.2 million to 13.4 million by 2026
Commercial vehicles to grow from 7 lakh ( 2014-15 ) to 39 lakh ( 2026 )



·         National Electric Mobility Mission Plan – 2020

6 million Electric and Hybrid vehicles on the road by 2020

All passenger and commercial vehicles to be powered by electricity by 2030

( Current population of all vehicles = 200 million )


·         Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles ( FAME )

Subsidies as follows :

#   Bikes………..Rs  29,000

#   Cars………..  Rs  138,000



·         Current Electric Vehicles Sales

#   2014-15………… 16,000

#   2015-16………..  22,000 ( only 2000 cars ; rest 2 wheelers )



·         Energy Import

#  2015-16……….. 202 million tons of oil ( valued at $ 150 billion )

#  By 2030……….  $ 300 billion



·         Voluntary Vehicle Fleet Modernisation Programme (V-VMP)

#  First Phase…… Scrap vehicles which are older than 15 years

·         Those surrendering their old vehicles will get some financial benefits.


·         Policy may provide benefits of Rs 2-3 lakh for every heavy vehicle to be scrapped.


     *  At the time of new purchase, manufacturer will offer some concession,
         government of India will provide some and there would be value for the scrap


·         The policy proposes three incentives for the vehicles scrapped –


#    half the road tax and excise duty at the time of purchase of the new vehicle,


#    fair value for the scrap, and


#    discounts from automobile manufacturers.



·         These incentives are likely to cut cost of a new vehicle for the buyer by 15% on an average. 


·          

THE   FOUNDATION :

There is NO WAY , this castle can hold up in the air – as envisaged above !


Shri Arun Jetleyji / ShriNitin Gadkariji / Shri Anant Geeteji / Shri Anil Daveji / Shri Piyush Goyalji , are requested to , once again , look up my following earlier blogs / emails.


They will find those foundations there !



·         Not a day too soon
