Suyash Gupta, Director General, Indian Auto LPG Coalition has said that while the tax incentive and GST reduction on EVs demonstrate government’s focus on clean energy initiatives, yet again it is limited to the EV space. The budget should have focused on providing incentives to other clean fuels such as Auto LPG as well, he pointed out.
“It is imperative for the country to adopt a basket of alternative fuels rather than a singular focus on the EVs. Just by reducing GST on Auto LPG and on the conversion kits, the government could have given a key push to this sector. Hope the government addresses the issue soon in upcoming GST council meetings,” he said.
