The Indian government has been pushing for electric vehicles for a while now. In the 2019 Union Budget, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman extended new incentives for the sector and those purchasing e-vehicles.

The move is aimed at making India a hub for e-vehicles and the government earmarked Rs 10,000 crore for the sector in the budget. However, lack of adequate charging infrastructure is a major problem that customers would face if they switch over to e-vehicles.

Moneycontrol's Stanford Masters gets in conversation with Swaraj Baggonkar to understand what are the major issues plaguing the EVs industry.
