Delhi’s Electric Vehicle policy which will complete three years in August has so far achieved around 86 per cent of its measures and targets.
Delhi transport department and Delhi Electric Vehicle (EV) cell on Wednesday kicked off the process of drafting a revised ‘Delhi EV Policy 2.0’ with a stakeholder consultation.
More than 220 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), businesses, industry players, think tanks and government departments participated in the meeting and shared their insights and recommendations on strengthening policy measures for greater e-mobility penetration in the city.
“Delhi’s EV Policy completes 3 years in August 2023, and has so far achieved around 86 per cent of its measures and targets according to the state transport department. By 2024, it aims to ensure that 25 per cent of all new registered vehicles in the city are electric,” the organisers of the consultation said in a statement.
In his address, Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot highlighted the success of the Delhi EV policy since its launch on August 7th, 2020, and revealed an impressive milestone: more than 1.20 lakh electric vehicles have been sold during the policy period.
