Transport Minister: Delhi aims to install a charging station for electric cars every 3 km

Transportation Minister Kailash Gahlot presented the details of the Delhi electric vehicle policy at a global summit on Thursday, saying that the Delhi gove
ment aims to establish charging stations every 3 kilometers from the city.

In a virtual speech at the global event organized by the World Bank and WRI Ross, Gahlot said that the Delhi gove
ment has set a very ambitious goal for the next five years: to have 25 percent of electric cars in the city's total vehicle registrations.

We want to set up charging stations within every 3 km. We are also giving purchase incentives to any person who wants to set up a private charging station, Gahlot said.

It said that under the Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy that was launched in August 2020, nearly 6,000 electric vehicles have been deployed on Delhi's roads.

We have subsidized and incentivized electric vehicle purchases to motivate more and more people, he said.
He said Delhi has a dedicated EV cell and state EV board as a single-window cell to ensure proper deployment, day-to-day operations, and address any issues that may arise.
