We @PluginIndia are passionate about Electric Vehicles and Clean energy. Our aim is to accelerate the shift to plug-in vehicles powered by clean, affordable, domestic electricity to reduce our country's dependence on imported oil and thus improve the global environment.
We have started doing this by creating content (blogs, videos, reviews) that helps in spreading awareness of electric vehicles and clean energy. We also work with the Electric Vehicle Industry and local businesses to bring about change.
We also get the EV industry to interact with the community. We really love clean technologies like recycling, renewable energy (wind power, solar power, biomass, hydropower, biofuels) etc. We believe these technologies will power our transportation, homes and meet our energy needs in the future in a sustainable manner.
We have conceived RE:LIVE events to promote EV’s and have promoted community charging by pioneering the idea of community charging stations, where communities open up their homes, offices and businesses for EV owners.

Tarun is a graduate of IIT Madras, batch of 2012. He worked as a manager in an auto company for 6 months before realizing that his true calling lay in building stuff. Together with Swapnil, his batch-mate, he started Ather in March 2013. Ather's mission is to accelerate the adoption of EVs in India and is working towards it by building India's best scooter - a pure electric scooter.
Tarun was actively involved with the entrepreneurship cell in IIT Madras (C-TIDES) and always wanted to start-up. He headed C-TIDES from 2009-2010 and organized India’s first ASES student entrepreneurship summit in 2010. Due to the association with C-TIDES, Tarun has been actively working with entrepreneurs for the last 6 years. He loves product start-ups and himself worked on over a dozen prototypes, over a wide range of topics and has six co-patents (pending).
