Delhi approves electric vehicle policy

The Delhi government has approved a policy for electric vehicles (EVs), which mainly focuses on electric two-wheelers, shared transport vehicles such as three-wheelers and buses, and goods carriers or freight vehicles. These vehicles contribute to most of the vehicular pollution in the capital. In the next one year, the Delhi government is targeting to deploy 35,000 electric two-, three- and four-wheelers and buses, 1,000 EVs, and 250 public charging or swapping stations. It will provide 100 per cent subsidy for the purchase of charging equipment up to Rs 6,000 per charging point for the first 30,000 charging points at homes or workplaces. The policy will be valid for three years from the date of notification.
