He said that 30 more e-highway charging stations would be constructed within a record time of 90 days from the date of allotment to public sector undertakings/private entities.
He said that these charging stations are commercially and technically competing with petrol pumps now with 72 per cent utilization and 36 months break, this station has the capacity to charge 1,000 cars and Sector 52 station 576 cars. These simple prototypes have proved that e-highway charging stations will be world class and will create a robust commercial roadmap for e-mobility on Indian highways.
