CESL says that through this tender, local manufacturers will be given importance in the purchase of electric buses. This will also give a boost to the electric vehicle industry in India. Experts believe that in the next 5-6 years all the buses in the big cities of the country will be electric. This will help in curbing air pollution and the work of environmental protection will also be done faster.
