Without sharing details, JSW Group further stated that the Odisha government has been supporting the project through a special package of incentives to foster industrial growth and technological innovation. While this initiative is expected to enhance Odisha's industrial landscape, it would also contribute significantly to India's electric vehicle manufacturing capabilities. India has been aiming to become a major automobile manufacturing hub in the world, while at the same time, it is increasingly focusing on electric mobility. This upcoming project is expected to play a key role in that plan.
