No attempt to shut any industry but technology should change with time: Gadkari on electric mobility

No attempt to shut any industry but technology should change with time: Gadkari on electric mobility
The government is not attempting to shut any industry but changes must be made with time in view of national interest, Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari said while sharing his views on the matter of electric mobility.
"The government does not want to shut any industry but wants to help them. We want to connect private sector in all our projects to increase our growth rate. However, some changes will be needed... to reduce pollution... in view of national interest," Gadkari said on the sidelines of Confederation of Indian Industry's National Council Meeting.
Additionally, Gadkari also said that while some changes will be necessary to be made by the industry, the government is assessing these requirements. He, however, said any decision in the matter will be taken only after consultation with the industry.
Last week, CNBC-TV18 had exclusively reported that the government has started making draft norms for electric mobility which has proposed sales of only electric three-wheelers from April 2023 and only electric two-wheelers under 150cc from April 2025 onwards.
Soon after, several automotive manufacturers, including Bajaj Auto Ltd, Hero MotoCorp Ltd and TVS Motor Co Ltd, showed concerns regarding the proposal and said that the transition must take place after industry consultation and shouldn't be forced.
