The Centre plans to initiate recovery of wrongly claimed subsidies by electric vehicle (EV) makers under a dedicated ₹10,000-crore programme that was created to promote local manufacturing and adoption of transport choices that don’t leave tailpipe emissions.

The Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) has begun the process to ascertain the quantum of subsidy used by manufacturers without adhering to the specified degree of localisation committed for availing monetary benefits from the scheme called Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles in India, or FAME India.
