I'm pretty sure it'll end up like last time where Government officials refused to use electric cars

Government officials have refused to use electric cars made by Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd and Tata Motors Ltd citing poor performance and low mileage, said three people aware of the development.

According to a senior official from one of the ministries involved in formulating rules and regulations for electric mobility, both models failed to run even 80-82km on a single charge within city limits. Battery capacity was not up to the mark, compared to global standards, the official added, requesting anonymity.
Also can't help but notice the plates. Delhi police can actually fine all these cars for defective number plates. It's having black letters on white plate whereas it should've been white letters on Green plate :)

Once this has happened, one can safely say that Bharat Sarkar is serious about EVs.

Excellent news for what it portends.We hope we have a few on the highways as well. The last thing you want in an EV is that you are stuck with 'no juice' left.

How fast are the fast chargers? What's the standard? Is this CCS2 Combo? Good initiative but we need 250+ km EVs to take advantage of fast charging.

Isn't it a little strange that an activity at the Parliament of a secular nation has what looks like a priest and religious ceremonies of a particular religion.

Is this common?

P.S. I hope this won't be taken as a political post. I am genuinely curious
