So, there is an urgent need for India for a  proactive step today. Else India will end up importing all its storage battery requirements from China in future.

Do you also see a sceneario where perhaps India invests in manufacturing enough to be a player on the international export market? Or would it be more for in-nation use?

Yes,India can be an alternative source of battery for the world.
The country has already become a manufacturing hub for wind turbines and blades for Vestas,GE,Enercon and Nordex.
It can also make and supply batteries as well, provides there is a strategic initiative from the Government of India in place. The scenario will be clear in next three or four years.
