The Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) had sanctioned 2,877 electric vehicles (EV) charging stations in 68 cities across 25 states and Union Territories (UTs) under the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (EVs) in India (FAME India) Scheme Phase-II.

The MHI had sanctioned 1,576 EV charging stations in 16 highways and nine expressways under the Phase-II scheme.

As per the guidelines of the Ministry of Power (MoP), there should be a minimum of one EV charging station at every 25 km of road on both sides of the National Highway (NH) and also at least one charging station for long-range Heavy Duty EVs at every 100 km of roads on both sides of the NH.

At least one charging station will be set up in the cities in a grid of 3 km x 3 km.

The MHI had sanctioned about 520 charging stations of EV infrastructure for about Rs 43 crore under Phase-I of the FAME India scheme.

A budget provision of Rs 1,000 crore has been earmarked for five years between 2019-20 to 2023-24 for establishing EV charging infrastructure under Phase-II of the FAME India Scheme.
