Amitabh Kant believes India is in the midst of a huge disruption.

Speaking on the future of e-mobility adoption in India, Kant spoke about India's need to cut down on import of oil.

"India's biggest strength is in terms of its sun, we need to store the renewable electricity we produce," Kant said in an interview with Entrepreneur India.

In India, 72 per cent vehicles are two-wheelers & 5-6 per cent are three-wheelers. Keeping this in mind, the Indian government's strategy is to push electric two-wheelers & three-wheelers.

The NITI Aayog chief believes the government has been able to create a ready ecosystem for startups in India as the Indian government is acting as a facilitator to make this movement grow & expand.

"Indian government has given a massive push to MSMEs. We want our micros to grow big & small to grow into medium & medium to grow into large companies," Kant said.

The coming two years of Amitabh Kant's tenure at NITI Aayog will mean NITI Aayog to drive all progressive means in India - from education to health, technology to Electric Vehicles and mobile manufacturing to battery storage.
