Green vehicles exempted from permit requirements

September 9, 2018 |

In India, Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and the national government said that any green fuel vehicles including electric, ethanol, biodiesel, CNG, methanol and biofuel, do not need to apply for permits and are exempted from the government permit requirements. The government is doing this in a move to push public interest toward alternative fuels and cleaner vehicles.

Gadkari also told Business Today that “the states have agreed to abide by decision as recommendations to this effect came from a Group of Ministers of states, headed by Rajasthan Transport Minister Yunus Khan.”

The minister also encouraged automakers to diversify into water transport, according to Business Today. “Why don’t you diversify? From Allahabad to Varanasi, we are maintaining a draft of 1.5 metre. Fifteen crore people will be gathering at Kumbha mela. You come and run 500-600 seater catamarans. I will give you all permissions in eight days,” Gadkari told Business Today.
