Mar 19 (PTI) The government should make concerted efforts in planning a road-map to redeploy the employees in the conventional automobile sector who would be displaced with the changeover to electric mobility, a Parliamentary panel has said.

In its report tabled in Parliament today, the Standing Committee on Industry observed that the economic ramification of switching to pure electric vehicle technology "has to be given priority by the Government, as any laxity in proper planning and implementation could affect millions of jobs in the auto sector".

The committee recommended that the government come up with a well spelt out road-map based on empirical studies before pushing hard for transformation to pure EV technology.

It said the path of transformation needs a lot of coordinated and well thought out planning from the part of the government, with the partnership of the Auto Industry. PTI RSN RSN BAL BAL
