To begin this process, the CSC will appoint Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs) who will help in facilitating a smoother operation. They will form the connection between the customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The team will also help in spreading the awareness of the government initiatives in the villages.

The Chief Executive Officer of MEML Suman Mishra shared opportunities as such will help in providing employment in this section as well. “This tie-up will help us to penetrate rural markets and propagate the use of electric vehicles, thereby helping India achieve its EV mission quicker," Mishra added. The earning ability with the company's three-wheelers is quite high while the maintenance is the lowest when compared to conventional fuel vehicles and the benefit to the environment is significant, she added.
