Electric vehicles are the newest craze in the market and the latest car segment to adopt the same are the heavy duty vehicles like trucks and buses. The Union ministry of home affairs (MHA) has announced its plans to switch to electric vehicles as well as intentions of using non-conventional source of energy like solar and wind for power instead of the depleting resources. It is part of the Go Green movement which the Government has planned for the year 2022 in order to reduce the dependency on conventional fuel which is not only depleting but also expensive.
The initiative can reduce the use of oil and gas by about 10% but providing an alternate source. The plan has been headed by CRPF, ITBP, BSF and other central armed protection forces and will be preparing blueprint for energy efficiency initiatives. The movement has brought in awareness among the crowd which has resulted in a hike in demand of the EVs by 5 lakh. Not only as the EVs environment friendly but they have also proven to be noiseless and thus assure safe movement of military forces in areas of high disturbance. A MHA-approved list of vehicles has been asked for and home affairs ministry might opt for purchasing the same.
