The Andhra Pradesh Economic Development Board (APEDB) has announced that along with Urja Global, it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for setting up manufacturing units of lithium-ion batteries and electric vehicles for the development of electric mobility ecosystem.

Under the MoU, Urja Global has settled to capitalize ₹2 billion ($28.55 million) which will generate 250 direct and 1,000 indirect job opportunities. The manufacturing units will be set up at Anantapur, Nellore, and Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh.
