A new whitepaper suggests that India's shift to electric auto-rickshaws can be hastened by implementing fiscal incentives, improving state processes, and offering affordable financing options.

Launched at a workshop by the Telangana government, the report by NRDC, ASCI, and the International Copper Association of India, provides a comprehensive blueprint for retrofitting internal combustion engine (ICE) three-wheelers to electric.
