The Indian government has not set a deadline to launch electric vehicles or to ban the manufacturing of petrol and diesel cars, a government official said on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been working to push electric vehicles in an effort to cut India's fuel import bill and curb pollution.
