The Automobile sector contributes 49% to India's manufacturing GDP and 7.1% to India's GDP. Acknowledging its significance, the Government of India has recognized it as a major thrust sector. It is proactively promoting the electric vehicle industry, leading towards a greener and sustainable future for India.
