I am trying to install maven on windows. I have downloaded the apache mavenbin.zip and extracted it on my C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.6.1. I already have jdk 1.8 installed in my system and also have configured the JAVA_HOME and MAVEN_HOME environment variables via the system properties.I have also ensured that i have added their respective bin locations on the PATH variable. Still i am encountering the above error. Kindly help!

Setting the environment variables JAVA_HOME, MAVEN_HOME and  PATH  via the system property settings may not be effective sometimes.In the command prompt, echo %JAVA_HOME% ,%MAVEN_HOME%, %PATH% and check the values if they are correctly set and included in the PATH as well. if not, you need to set those Environment variables via the command prompt using the following command:

setx JAVA_HOME "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_211"

setx PATH "%PATH%;%JAVA_HOME%\bin";

same for MAVEN_HOME as well.

setx MAVEN_HOME "C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.6.1"

setx PATH "%PATH%;%MAVEN_HOME%\bin";

You can check if these are set appropriately by running the commands:  java -version and mvn --version on the command prompt.
