As a step ahead in India’s climate discourse, what lies next is the development and enabling of a long-term strategy to drive enhanced climate action. As a first step in this direction, TERI has developed a guiding document on framing India’s Long-Term Strategy (LTS). The framework encapsulates the urgent need and benefit of developing an LTS, other than the voluntary commitment under Article 4.19 of the Paris Agreement. With this backdrop, it charts out the most essential pillars that will enable the development and implementation of a strong long-term strategy, the interdependencies in their roles, and key decisions to be taken under each pillar.

Electrification of auto-rickshaws plays an important role in meeting the transport requirement of many large and medium Indian cities and is critical for reducing air pollution and providing clean mobility solutions.

Despite many initiatives and programmes of the government, such as the Faster Adoption of Manufacturing Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) in India, the growth of electric vehicles (EVs) is still not able to pick up the pace.
