Oh oh oh..  our first news post christmas is straight from Santa's bag. Tesla is gearing up for it's India launch and there could not be a better gift to start your day!


Tesla, the world’s most valuable automaker, is all set to enter the Indian market in 2021. The US electric vehicle giant will bring its best-selling and most affordable Model 3 here by mid 2021 and the booking will start next month.

While the deliveries will begin later, the bookings for the electric sedan will commence in India from next month. 


As of now, they will focus on direct selling, like their international way of selling. They are likely to import the Completely Built Unit (CBU). For this reason, the starting price is expected to be in the range of rupees 55 lakhs. 

Tesla had also reportedly held discussions with multiple state governments and central governments regarding setting up local manufacturing units. 

Bottom line: Yes, good news and big boost to the Indian EV ecosystem. But, without govt incentives, Tesla might be beyond the reach of the mass.

Against all odds, including the slump in coal demand, the government opened up the country's mining sector for private players by auctioning 19 blocks. 

Coal demand across the world is projected to fall by around five per cent this year compared to 2019.

Sustainable Development Cell aims to promote environmentally sustainable coal mining and address environmental concerns during the decommissioning or closure of mines. 

The cell also formulates policy framework for the environmental mitigation measures, including the mine closure fund.

Bottomline: The focus is sustainability.
