FAME 3 the most awaited scheme for Indian EV Adoption.

New Delhi, May 29, 2024 — While the Indian automobile sector is still under the impact of FAME II, the market is anticipating the FAME 3 announcement. Especially, at the times, when the automobile sector in India is striving for the change towards a Sustainable and Self-reliant India. However, the same is anticipated to be released only after the formation of a new government at the Centre. Furthermore, FAME 3 shall address critical challenges via several growth pillars. Further, supporting the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) in India.

Driving EV Adoption Through FAME 3

FAME 3 is set to increase the pace that was initiated in FAME 1 and FAME 2. Particularly with the enormous additions it offered to the growth of EV sales most especially in the two-wheelers and three-wheelers classes. While the FAME 1 & 2 schemes created an ecosystem via subsidies and incentives, they ensured a relatively high level of adaptation of EVs. However, FAME III, the scheme, has improved with government support continued for the electric car scheme, and new incentives for the incorporation of electric automobiles into the markets by common consumers. This has ultimately helped in expanding the market demand for EVs in India.

Localizing Manufacturing

There exists a need to enhance the local manufacturing industry, which is one of the main reasons that animates FAME 3. Moreover, the introduction of better incentives for manufacturing electric vehicle components and automobiles within the country would also be beneficial. Further, the scheme shall bring in significant deports or cut down the dependency on imports in India. This platform is likely to strengthen the domestic value chain and authorize Made in India inspired by the Indian government. Further, manufacturing goods and parts domestically is predicted to generate a sizable number of vacancies and increase economic development.

Expanding EV Segments through FAME 3

Thus FAME 2 mainly concentrated on the support given to the public and shared transport systems. Further, FAME 3 shall be the support system for the passenger electric vehicle segment. The idea of increasing higher subsidies, and incentives in the case of personal electric cars will also help a lot in increasing the overall demand for them among car consumers. It is imperative for an expansion of the EV market to cater to other segments than the privileged population class. There needs to be a measure making electric mobility the norm rather than the exception for Indian families.

Developing Charging Infrastructure

One of the major factors that have slowed the adoption of EVs is the insufficient charging facilities to serve the growing needs. FAME 3 tries to solve this problem by focusing on charging infrastructure, on Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities especially. This focus on extending the sulfuric grid is believed to reduce the range apprehension among potential EV consumers. Therefore increase the viability of electric cars in every region across the country.

Promoting Technological Advancement of FAME 3

The emphasis is placed on innovation in the FAME 3 scheme as large sums of money can be expected to be provided to research of advance the technology in EVs. Some of the highlighted technologies will be the high energy density batteries. That are critical in extending EV practicality to be more achievable for their utilization in day-to-day lives. They will also simultaneously improve the comfort and power of electric vehicles as they become perceived as new technologies.

Providing Regulatory Support

FAME 3 shall provide an unambiguous regulatory framework and stable policy incentives. Especially, the ones that EV industry can use for accurately determining investment decisions and strategies. Indian Government should provide clear and transparent rules to reduce uncertainty. Which stimulates new entrants and investments in EV technologies.


As a result, the FAME III is an important mission for the automobile industry in India. Further, to overcome the challenges hindering the development of EV infrastructure. There is a need of a bundle of incentives, the development of electric vehicle infrastructure, and technological upgrades. Moreover, the program has the potential to steer the country toward a cleaner and more sustainable future. The timely and effective establishment of FAME 3 will showcase India as world expert in Electric Mobility by setting an example to other nations.
