American electrical automobile giant Tesla has been going through a wave of unprecedented challenges to launch its products in India, according to founder and CEO Elon Musk.
In 2021, Tesla had hoped for a reduction in import duties for its electric vehicles in the country.
In response to this plea, the Heavy Industries Ministry had demanded the company to start manufacturing its vehicles, and a concession would be considered only after the launch.
Sources had justified the decision by stating that no other automobile companies have been provided with concessions and other benefits and doing so for Tesla would be biased and partial.
Responding to the founders’ latest tweet, many leaders from Maharashtra, Punjab, Telangana and West Bengal have invited Elon Musk to establish its manufacturing facilities in the states.
