Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari warned Electric Vehicles (EV) manufactures on Tuesday to recall any faulty two-wheelers, claiming that some EV batteries may be experiencing troubles due to the country's current severe heat.
He admitted that the domestic EV business is "only getting started," but that "safety is the government's top priority, and human lives cannot be compromised." "The temperature rises in the months of March, April, and May, and there may be issues with the EV battery. I believe it is a (high) temperature issue "Gadkari addressed the audience.
The Minister emphasised that the government is working to make electric vehicles more popular among the general public, and that the EV industry is still in its early stages. "We don't want to create a roadblock, but safety is our top responsibility," he continued. "We have formed an Expert Committee to investigate these incidents and offer recommendations for corrective action. We will impose required orders on defaulting enterprises based on the reports "he stated "Quality-centric rules for Electric Vehicles will be issued soon," he said.
