A few days back, the Government announced its decision to increase electric two-wheeler subsidies under its FAME II scheme. In order to be precise, a notification issued by the Department of Heavy Industry had stated that the incentive for electric two-wheelers in the country has now been increased to Rs 15,000 per kWh compared to the previous Rs 10,000 per kWh. As a result of this, electric two-wheelers in India have now become cheaper significantly. That said, if you have been noticing prices of electric bikes and scooters slashing in recent days, now you know the reason behind it. Among all EV makers, Ather Energy was the first one to announce the price cut for its products.
