This could create a delay in claims for the EV ecosystem stakeholders, as the website plays a crucial role in claiming subsidies, selling and purchasing electric vehicles. While the ministry of heavy industries, which is the nodal ministry for the FAME-II scheme, informed the auto manufacturers about the lag in the website through an email but it didn't specify when the issue will be resolved.

The lag in the FAME-II website means the auto manufacturers are unable to sell their electric vehicles, as the portal is the first step for them to verify the buyer's Aadhar card on FAME-II for a subsidy, alongside insurance and RTO related procedures. With this, the automobile dealers who sell electric and hybrid vehicles have their working capital locked in FAME-II because of delays in claim settlement.

FAME-II was introduced as the second edition of the scheme to promote greener mobility in India. For the high-speed electric vehicles that require registration, insurance and are eligible for subsidies, the FAME-II website is highly crucial. The scheme has played a key role in promoting electric vehicles in India. Under the Union Budget 2022-2023, an amount of 2,908 crore has been earmarked for subsidy under the FAME-II scheme.
