Abstract

 

The Indian government has shown a growing recognition of the need for policy instruments aimed at addressing increasing air pollution, oil imports, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with India’s light-duty vehicle (LDV) sector. Based on the findings of a survey of Indian passenger vehicle ecosystem experts, this commentary aims to understand the potential central and state policy levers that could be used to address these three issues.
