Govt holds consultation on Aggregator Scheme

Tuesday, 25 January 2022 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

Delhi Government on Monday convened a virtual round-table consultation to deliberate on the various contours of Aggregator Scheme 2021

The round-table consultation was attended by over 100 participants from on-demand service mobility operators, fleet aggregators, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), last-mile delivery operators, civil society organisations and experts in a virtual meeting.

More than 80 industry leaders participated in the discussion and shared their feedback and suggestions on the seamless implementation of the fleet aggregator scheme.

The round-table consultation started with the inaugural address and keynote speeches highlighting the intent of the Delhi Government to achieve a transition of 10% of the new-onboarded two-wheelers and three-wheelers by aggregators to be electric within the first 3 months from the launch of the scheme, and 50% in the first year of the scheme. Similarly, under the scheme, the aggregators will be required to convert 5% of their new onboarded four-wheelers to electric within 3 months, and 25% by the first year of the scheme.

Gahlot, Minister of Transport, Delhi Government said, “Delhi has become the first State Government to notify an Aggregator Policy to mandate electric vehicle fleets for ride aggregators and delivery services.” He added, “The state government has also launched the state’s electric vehicle website, which serves as a one-stop destination for all insights on electric vehicles in Delhi.”

Highlighting the need for partnerships and collaboration across the EV ecosystem and the adoption of aggregator policy by the Transport Department, Ashish Kundra, Principal Secretary-cum-Commissioner (Transport) said, “We are committed to promote the adoption of electric vehicles in the city to address the issue of growing air pollution. However, we are keen to ensure a smooth transition of the ecosystem and not create major disruptions. The draft scheme conveys the intent of the Delhi Government, and subsequently, the feedback and suggestions received on the scheme shall enable us to create a conducive environment for these businesses to operate and flourish.”
