Electric car maker Tesla is set to come to India. In January last year, the company registered itself in Karnataka. Now the Government of India has urged the government to reduce the import duty on Tesla electric vehicles. Meanwhile, there is news that the Government of India is considering the demand for Tesla.
Asked to submit a production plan: The Government of India has asked Tesla to submit a production plan. According to a Bloomberg report, the Ministry of Heavy Industry and Finance asked for details from Tesla at the meeting. Not only this, the government’s demand for reducing import tariffs has also been examined. According to information, departments are seeking comments from Tesla about the import of fully built cars and partially built vehicles. However, with the exception of Tesla, the Ministry of Heavy Industry and Finance has made no statement on this whole issue.
Let us tell you that Tesla wrote to the Narendra Modi government in July demanding the reduction of the import duty on electric cars. Tesla had requested to reduce import tariffs on electric cars to 40 percent from the current limit. However, Union government minister Krishan Paul Gurjar has said in Parliament that no such proposal is under consideration.
