It is high time automakers reap the dividends of India's aggressive thrust on electric mobility by manufacturing quality vehicles at affordable prices, Union minister Nitin Gadkari said today.

That is why they have paid hefty prices for that and foreign players became popular here due to this philosophy," Road Transport and Highways Minister Gadkari said at an event here. "It is high time that the automakers come forward for production of quality electric vehicles and get the benefits as those who will venture first will definitely be winners and those focusing on cost will remain behind," the minister said.

The Centre had, towards the end of 2017, agreed to club the two phases. The other beneficiary state, Uttar Pradesh, has already agreed to implement the project, which was first pushed by the NDA-I government, led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee. "The problem ..
