Dilip Nigam, director of wind policy at the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, said during the January 17-18 Wind IPP Summit that despite years of concessions, exemptions, and incentives, India’s wind energy industry is still unable to stand on its own. The Ministry of Finance is questioning why the industry continues to struggle despite income tax holidays, excise duty relief, concessions on import duties for parts, easy loans, and preferential tariffs, and is considering whether to renew the Generation-Based Incentive and the Accelerated Depreciation scheme.
