The MHI's notification revealed that the PMP, designed to encourage domestic manufacturing of EV components and chargers, will now have an extended validity period, stretching up to June 30, 2025, in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions in the supply chain.
The revised PMP introduces relaxations in localisation requirements for EV chargers. Notably, it permits the import of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and power modules until June 30, 2024.
Additionally, the MHI has communicated to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and testing agencies, instructing them to re-validate all approved models of EV chargers within an additional month from the last day of the certificate's validity.
OEMs are also urged to submit quarterly reports on the localisation status of EV chargers as per the PMP.
This extension is anticipated to alleviate challenges faced by EV charger manufacturers in meeting localisation targets amid the pandemic. Furthermore, the revised PMP aims to stimulate the growth of the EV industry in India, fostering a conducive environment for the development of a robust EV ecosystem.
