Hybrid Electric Vehicles


Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Before 1st April 2015, only one model of hybrid electric vehicle was available in the country and its sale was very limited. However, after the launch of FAME-India Scheme, incentive is being given for purchase of hybrid and electric vehicles. This resulted into more availability of hybrid and electric vehicles and also resulted into increase in sale of hybrid and electric vehicles. Against last year sale of 477 vehicles, this year total sale of hybrid vehicles is more than 15000 vehicles till November, 2015.


There is an ambitious target to achieve 6-7 million sales of hybrid and electric vehicles year on year from 2020 onwards. Government aims to provide fiscal and monetary incentives to kick start this nascent technology. With the support from the Govt., the cumulative sale is expected to reach 6-7 Million by 2020.

Incentives in the form of upfront reduced purchase price are already notified and is being extended to buyers.

This information was given by Minister of State in the Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises, Shri G.M. Siddeshwara in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.

Conformity of Production Tests

This is required to study to compare NEDC cycle emission with the WLTC cycle emission, to understand how the chassis dyno emissions are different than real world emissions, to correlate and recommend the ratio of chassis dynamometer emissions to real world emissions for possible compliance in future regulations, to define a test route for real world emission testing in Delhi NCR, to study the effect of heavy traffic congestion on emissions.

Every manufacturer of motor vehicles other than trailer and semi trailers have to submit the prototype of the vehicle to be manufactured by him for test by any of the agencies specified therein for granting a certificate as to the compliance of the provisions of the MV Act and CMVRs. Rule 126A of CMVR requires the test agencies, referred to in rule 126, to also test on conduct test on vehicles drawn from the production line of the manufacturer to verify whether these vehicles conform to the provision of rules made under section 110 of MV Act. Enforcement of provision of MV Act and CMVRs comes under purviews of State Government/UTs. Checking of emission norms as specified in the type approval document can be done by the testing agencies specified in rule, 126 of CMVRs.

Revival of Japla Cement Factory

            Details of cement plants/factories presently functional in the countries as provided by Department of Industrial Policy and  Promotion (DIPP) is enclosed as Annexure-I.

            Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion has intimated that cement industries has been decontrolled in 1989 and de-licensed in 1991under the policy of liberalization and, hence, the Department does not take any action to revive sick cement industries. Further, Ministry of Finance/Department of Financial Services has informed that certain measures like financial re-construction, change in management of sick company, amalgamation with other company, sale or lease of part of or whole of sick company etc. are recommended by Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR). A list of sick cement plants registered and pending with BIFR with their current status (State-wise) is attached as per Annexure-II.

So far as Cement Corporation of India (CCI), a Central Public Sector Enterprise under Department of Heavy Industry is concerned, it is a BIFR referred sick company having Corporate office in Delhi. It has following operating and non operating units:

Operating Units

1.
Bokajan, Distt. KarbiAnglong, Assam

2.
Rajban, Distt. Sirmour, Himachal Pradesh

3.
Tandur, Distt. Rangareddy, Telangana.

Non-operating units

1. Mandhar, District Raipur, Chhattisgarh
2. Akaltara, District Champa, Chhattisgarh
3. Nayagaon/Nayagaon Expansion, District Neemuch, Madhya Pradesh
4. Kurkunta, District Gulbarga, Karnataka
5. CharkhiDadri, District Bhiwani, Haryana
6. Adilabad, District Adilabad, Telangana.
7. Delhi Grinding Unit, Delhi

The Revival Scheme of CCI, as approved by the Government and ordered by BIFR, envisages expansion/ modernisation of 3 operating units and closure and sale of 7 non-operating units along with implementation of VSS in the same.  Out of 7 non-operating units, 6 units have been closed w.e.f October, 2008 and employees of these units were separated under VSS. The Adilabad unit could not be closed due to interim order of the Hon’ble High Court of Andhra Pradesh for maintaining status-quo. Action for expansion/ modernization of the operating units was taken. However, the results of the entire scheme for revival of CCI could not reach the desired level because of non-sale of the assets of non-operating units of the company, which has caused a shortage of funds for the revival. BIFR has directed for an entire new Modified Draft Revival Scheme (MDRS).

            Ministry of Finance/ Department of Financial Services has intimated that no company by the name of M/s Japla Cement Factory has been registered as a sick company in BIFR.
