Increase in import of crude oil has become a major problem for the country. Now, the Indian
government is formulating a national policy to promote bio-fuels. A host of fiscal incentives are
on the cards. The aim is to ensure sustainable production, conversion and application of bio-
fuels. As per a proposal before the Cabinet by the ministry of new and renewable energy, a
national bio-fuel development board will be set up. The board’s mandate is to partly replace
petrol and diesel for transport and other applications.
The policy will lay emphasis on research and development (R&D) for production, processing
and commercialisation of bio-fuels like ethanol and jatropha. To promote bio-fuel development
the government is aiming at fiscal sops. The fiscal sops for the bio-fuel sector could include
excise and sales tax/VAT exemption. There will be a plan of action to use waste and degraded
land for cultivation of jatropha. In some states, large-scale jatropha cultivation has already
begun. This will be expanded in scope by providing economy of scale.

21. The efforts made by the government will reduce he increasing and worrisome onus of crude
oil imports on the fisc through gradual limited replacement of petroleum products with bio-fuels
