Let us inform that in October last year, the work of setting up 54 charging stations in North Delhi was entrusted with the cooperation of BECIL, CESL and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited. PSUs BECIL and CESL are setting up 17-17 charging stations while Tata Power 20 has been entrusted with the installation of 20 charging stations.
For the convenience of the users, these charging stations are being built near places like public parks, vehicle parking lots, hospitals and market complexes. Ranibagh Charging Station is located on road no 44 and has been made operational from 10th February. Two charging stations of 50KW and 15 KW each have been built here. Two electric cars can be charged simultaneously at this station. Battery swapping facility has also been provided for two wheeler electric vehicles.
Tata Power Delhi Distribution is working to set up private and public EV charging infrastructure in the National Capital Region. The agency is also leasing its land for setting up such charger and battery swap stations. In the land lease model, two battery swap stations have been deployed at TPDDL Azadpur and Rohini RG-3 Grid in association with Sun Mobility.
The company is also working on OPEX model where it installs EV chargers on lease basis to private owners. This will help the company to set up, operate and maintain the charging unit while the lease amount will be paid to the land owner as actual unit consumption.
Explain that after the implementation of the Electric Vehicle Policy in Delhi, the demand for e-vehicles has increased. Due to the Electric Vehicle Policy of Delhi Government, customers are saving huge on the purchase of Electric Vehicle. Delhi is the first city in the country where registration and road tax are being fully exempted for the purchase of electric vehicles.
The Delhi government has set a target of 25 per cent electric vehicles share in the city by 2025. The Delhi government has constructed 201 charging stations and 380 e-vehicle charging stations in the city in the last two years, which is more than any city at the national level. Apart from this, there are plans to set up 600 more charging stations in Delhi by the middle of 2022.
Explain that the subsidy on electric vehicles has been fixed according to the battery capacity. Under the scheme, a subsidy of Rs 10,000 per kilowatt hour (kWh) has been fixed on 1,000 electric cars. The maximum subsidy that can be availed on an electric car in Delhi is Rs 1.50 lakh. At the same time, a maximum subsidy of Rs 30,000 is being given on two wheeler, three wheeler, freight and courier electric vehicles.
