FAME India was launched in 2015 under the National Electric Mobility Mission (NEMM) with the motive of promoting environment-friendly vehicles across the country. It will do so by providing fiscal and monetary incentives for adoption and market creation of both hybrid and electric technologies vehicles.

It will incentivise all kinds of vehicles – two-wheeler, three-wheeler auto, passenger four-wheeler, light commercial vehicles and buses.

The electric vehicles for the commuting public will save fossil fuel and protect the city’s environment. The scheme will also cover hybrid and electric technologies. These include strong hybrid, plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles. The scheme wants to achieve self-sustenance in the stipulated period.
