The government's decision to revise the FAME II subsidy on May 22, 2023, affected sales in significant numbers. The subsidy was reduced from Rs. 15,000 per kWh to 10,000 kWh. Moreover, the incentive is also reduced to 15% from the earlier benefit of 40%. Therefore, it made the buyer rush and buy the Electric Vehicles before the price hike. As a result, the number of two-wheelers sold between May 23 and May 31, 2023, shows an increase from 46,838 to 57,917 Electric Two-Wheelers sold. It means that 7239 units were sold in just eight days.
