India is in the process of framing a recycling policy for lithium-ion batteries being used in electric vehicles and offer tax sops to recycling entities while imposing a liability on producers to collect used batteries that achieve end of life under the extended producer responsibility (EPR) norms.
It (proposed policy) will have incentives for companies setting up recycling facilities and make it incumbent on producers to collect used batteries.
An inter-ministerial steering committee on transformative mobility had proposed that the environment, forest and climate change ministry prepare a recycling policy, along with extended producer responsibility, for batteries and electric vehicles.
