As the Narendra Modi Government is moving ahead with its ethanol blending programme, Zee Business’ Chetan Bhutani tells viewers that there could likely be tax incentives for oil marketing companies. 

Bhutani said that the Prime Minister in his address during the launch of E-100 pilot project on Saturday gave a road map of India’s plans of meeting its target of 20 per cent ethanol blending in petrol by 2025. The government has a big focus on this, he said.
