11 Cities In India Are Getting All-electric 390 Buses, 370 Taxis, 720 Autos by introvertme: 10:03am On Dec 29, 2017
India is taking some huge steps for the promotion of electric vehicles in the country, at a time when pollution is really choking up its cities — especially Delhi, which is choking under smog.

While the ambitious plan for only electric cars to be sold in the country by 2030 still stands
despite scepticism expressed about it, the Central government is also planning to introduce public transport vehicles that run on electricity in 11 cities across the country at a cost of Rs 437 crore.
The project — Multi-Modal Electric Public Transport — is part of the Central government's policy known as the "Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric and Hybrid Vehciles in India", or FAME India for short


Which cities will get how many electric vehicles?

Union Minister of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Anant Geete on Wednesday announced that the Central government was "providing Rs 437 crore subsidy to 11 cities under FAME India, for launching electric buses, taxis and three-wheelers." The three-wheelers are auto-rickshaws.
So which are the cities getting these electricity-driven public transport vehicles?

According to an official statement from the Union Ministry of Heavy Industries & Public Enterprises: "The selected cities are required to finalise the tendering process and issue supply order before February 28, 2018. Through this EOI [Expression of Interest], the Department of Heavy Industry is expected to spend about Rs. 437 crore under FAME India scheme (Phase I), which includes about Rs 40 crore as incentives for installation of charging infrastructure."

Who gets what?
The official statement from the ministry has said these 11 cities will in total get 390 buses, 370 taxis and 720 three-wheelers that will run on electricity.
Here is the break-up of which city will get subsidy for how many vehicles of what kind:
