Nagpur: Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari has advocated reducing the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on hybrid vehicles in the country to make India a green economy. Along with this, he has resolved to make the country completely free from more than 36 crore petrol and diesel vehicles. When asked whether it is possible to make India completely free from petrol and diesel vehicles.

Union Road Transport and Highways Minister said, 100 percent. Gadkari said, it is difficult, not impossible. This is my opinion. He said that India spends Rs 16 lakh crore on fuel imports. The minister said that this money will be used to improve the lives of farmers, villages will prosper and youth will get employment. Gadkari did not give any timeline for meeting this ambitious target, which even green energy supporters consider extremely difficult.

The minister said that a proposal to reduce GST on hybrid vehicles to 5 percent and on flex engines to 12 percent has been sent to the Finance Ministry, which is considering it. He said he strongly believes that the country can eliminate fuel imports by promoting the use of biofuels. Environmental activists welcomed Gadkari’s vision to increase green transportation, but cautioned against the move to allow the use of fossil fuels in power generation.
