Only ric 2-wheelers may be sold in country after 2025
NEW DELHI: Signalling a faster transition towards ric vehicles, the go nment is expected to mandate the sale of only ric three-wheelers from April 2023, while all new two-wheelers with engine capacity up to 150cc driving out of showrooms may have to be powered by ricity from April 2025.
The radical recommendations of a high-level go nment panel are aimed at reducing vehicular pollution as these two segments, with annual sales of over 2 crore units, account for more than three-quarters of the traffic on Indian roads. The move will not impact vehicles registered up to the cut-off date as they will continue to ply. The four-six year transition window has been provided to ensure that the auto industry, which is pum in large amounts of money to manufacture BS-VI compliant vehicles from April next year, gets enough time to recover its investment, sources told TOI.
The inter-ministerial steering committee led by Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant is likely to propose similar deadlines for delivery vehicles and school and city buses, though the suggestion may not be ptable to the auto industry, which has been pitching for doles.
由Niti Aayog首席执行官Amitabh Kant领导的跨部门指导委员会，很可能会对送货车辆、校车和城市公交车提出类似的最后期限，尽管这一提议可能不太符合汽车业的意愿。

When there is so much over-population, mass deaths may not be such a bad thing. Heard of Darwin''s Theory of Natural Sion ?

The ric two wheelers are fine, but there has to be enough battery charging facilities. Can the public or private sectors provide that? Even in US the ric cars are facing the same problem. For a long distance drive you need to have access to the battery charging facilities.

It will create many jobs. Electricity is easier than petrol, to deal with. Modi go nment works methodically, hence the first term spent on rification.

That''s great step going forward. India spends $85 billions only for importing Oil. Going ric will save environment, our economy, our future generations and reduced speed of vehicles leading to less accidents.

agreed! But unfortunately for this idea to work efficiently, the ricity in the country has to be available. Most villages in the country hardly have 12 hours of ricity....

That''s too optimistic, hope it wiill not be implemented like Demonetization. Environment should be built for ric vehicles first, before imposing any laws.

For ric vehicles, abt 5 crores of batteries are needed. So high quantity of acids, carbon etc ate to be produced. This all also create pollution, and for disposal also.

We will reduce air pollution drastically and our trade deficit due to oil imports will also get reduced drastically. What an idea sirji. But you need to work on infra.

Hats off to Modiji. Pappu cannot even think about this.

Two wheelers are big polluters, both atmospheric and noise. The problem with ric bikes is that they only have shorter range compared to bikes with petrol engines. Electric bikes are quiet. They are ideal for making short trips.

What about air conditioners, another serial killer? I think, if all the air conditioners, home, office and car, are stopped altogether, there would be a drop of temperature by at least 2 degree. There was a suggestion to set the default temperature of air conditioners to 24 degree Celsius.
