Why? Because a government establishment historically is woefully slow and hardly do we have examples which really standout as key innovation centres apart from some of the defence establishments and ISRO. How do we ensure that this proposed government establishment will work like ISRO or the defence establishments (I have a huge respect for them).
Isro is an independent organization, unlike cbi . The day when you or me or Mr. Kejriwal becomes the powerhouse, all these wishes will be fulfilled. Till then, let's rant here.

Actually I think that almost everything govt. does, private sector can do cheaper, faster and better.

As Jeremy Clarkson says "A government's job is to erect park benches and change the bulbs in the street lights. And that's pretty much it."

So the research institutions for EV should be autonomous like your IITs and IIMs etc. Set them up and let them run as private entities.

Read this article in ET today and it pretty much sums up the issue by saying

"From a policy standpoint, this study tells us that it makes more sense to set
emissions reductions goals, rather than promoting specific vehicle technologies
with the idea that they'll solve the problem on their own."

So, the NEMM would not help the government on some of the intended benefits of the programme, it could rather just backfire just as the reservation policy has.

Why e-vehicles in India can't reduce air pollution - A sharp increase in the use of electric drive passenger vehicles (EDVs) by 2050 would not significantly reduce emissions of high-profile air pollutants like carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide or nitrogen oxides.
