In order to make Delhi pollution free, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot on Friday launched the Electric Vehicle (EV) policy portal for seamless disbursement of all the demand incentives to the vehicle buyers. Addressing the media on the role played by electric vehicle policy in the anti-pollution campaign launched by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal titled “Yuddh Pradushan ke Virudh, Gahlot said EV dealers can log into ev.delhi.gov.in and apply for subsidy.
The whole process is simple and hassle-free, Gahlot said, adding that the transport department has already approved over 100 EV models which will be eligible for this subsidy which and till now 36 manufactures have registered and 98 dealers have joined with us in this mission.
Gahlot said, "One of the key actions the CM had announced was the implementation of Delhi’s EV policy. Delhi EV policy has been welcomed by all stakeholders and is considered as a model policy globally. It is our attempt that everything under the policy is implemented in the best way possible. Earlier this month, on October 10, 2020, it was decided that we implement the policy regarding exemption of road tax and on October 15, 2020, we implemented the exemption of registration."
The minister further said, "The portal will be instrumental in disbursing both these incentives in a quick, efficient and transparent manner. Under the purchase incentive being offered as part of the Delhi EV policy, the transport department has already approved over 100 EV models which will be eligible for this subsidy."
