  • It will achieve three key strategic goals- cutting down carbon emissions, creating new job opportunities and reduce use of crude oil, about 80% of the requirement of which is met through imports.

Global Mobility Summit 'MOVE'

  • NITI Aayog, in collaboration with various ministries and industry partners, has organized ‘MOVE: Global Mobility Summit’ in New Delhi.

    • Maximising asset utilisation and services
    • Comprehensive electrification and alternative fuels
    • Reinventing public transport
    • Goods transport and logistics
    • Data analytics and mobility

Aim of Summit

  • The main aim through the summit is to revolutionise the way people travel in India, to de-congest cities along with making mobility more connected, shared and seamless.
  • Affordability of public transit which is crucial for low-income users and of freight for the industry.
  • Better mobility is aimed to reduce the burden of travel and transportation, and can boost economic growth. It is already a major employer and can create the next generation of jobs
  • Further it is aimed to cut the crude oil import and hence reduce India’s huge import bill based on it.
  • Accessibility and inclusivity which are crucial for remote and differently-abled users across geographies, with the philosophy of leaving no-one behind.
  • It is aimed to provide safe, energy-efficient and low-emission systems which are necessary for India to meet its international commitments on climate change.

Features of Summit

  • The Summit will help drive the government’s goals for vehicle electrification, renewable energy integration and job growth and also speed up India’s transition to a clean energy economy.
  • The vision for the future of mobility in India is outlined by the 7 C’s- Common mobility, Connected mobility, Convenient mobility, Congestion-free mobility, Charged mobility, Clean Mobility powered by Clean Energy and Cutting-edge.

Way Forward

  • Entrepreneurs should see mobility as a sector with immense opportunity for innovation and growth. It is a sector where innovation can help solve problems for public good.
  • ‘Mobility Revolution’ is an enabler of growth and development. When India transforms mobility, it benefits one fifth of mankind. It also becomes a scaled success story, for others to replicate.
