An indigenous, efficient, affordable and certified BLDC motor and smart controller for e-rickshaws has been developed by IIT Kharagpur under the Indigenous Development of Electric Vehicle Sub-systems of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY). The technology was on Tuesday transferred to Brushless Motor India Pvt Ltd for commercial production, according to a press release.

Over 90 per cent of the components and technology for EVs such as motor, controller, converter, battery management system, charger, etc imported in India are not suitable for the local environment, road and traffic conditions. To manage this challenge and to increase local manufacturing, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has initiated a programme for the Indigenous Development of Electric Vehicle Sub-systems. Initially, technology development for 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler vehicles has been taken up as it contributes to more than 80 per cent of the vehicles on Indian roads.
