As of July 15th, 2022, there will be 532 operational charging stations, with 479 and 53 charging stations under the Fame I and Fame II schemes, correspondingly.

On July 1, the Ministry of Power approved the amended centralised standards and guidelines on battery storage for EVs which allowed any individual or organisation to set up the public charging infra if they meet the analytical, safety, and achievement social rules finally agreed by the authorities – Ministry of Power, Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and Central Electricity Authority (CEA), that are subordinate to time-to-time legislative changes.

In Phase II of the FAME India project, the Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) approved a Rs 1,000 crore budget for the building of EV charging infrastructure.

Additional addition to the strategy has been the statewide ‘Go Electric’ Campaign, which was jointly launched on February 19, 2021, by the Ministries of Power, Road Transport and Highways, Heavy Industries, and NITI Aayog.
