PMK leader S Ramadoss on Wednesday, while welcoming the e-vehicle policy rolled out by the state government, also demanded the state to provide more incentives to attract investments and to increase sales of e-vehicles in the state.
Ramadoss, who has been demanding the state to attract investments connected to e-vehicles in the state for long, said that if 50 percentage incentive for companies investing in southern districts was announced there are chances that more companies would prefer southern districts for investments and the economic growth would be even.
He also said that incentives should also be announced for buyers. “The cost of e-vehicles is comparatively higher when compared to the ordinary vehicles and for buyers to encourage them more incentives should be given. Though road tax and registration fees have been waivered, the benefit arising out of the waivers will not be enough to encourage buyers to go for e-vehicles,” said Ramadoss.
