Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Friday offered sops and facilities to several carmakers as his government inches closer to finalise its first electric vehicle policy. Besides Tata and Maruti, the state delegation is believed to have approached other carmakers like Toyota, Hyundai Motor and Honda Cars as well.

The proposed Jharkhand EV policy, which was presented to the carmakers, promises full exemption in stamp duty and registration fee. The government also promises to provide land for carmakers at a 50 per cent subsidy through the Jharkhand Industrial Area Development Authority (JIADA) if they promise to invest in electric vehicles within the first two years since the launch of the Jharkhand EV policy. It also proposes full exemption from vehicle registration fees and road tax.
