The state government will present an action plan for the implementation of electromobility, which corresponds to the central government’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 33-35% by 2030.
The state government has already published its policy for electric vehicles to create incentives for interest groups on the side of supply and demand, said Energy Minister N. Srikant in a press release.
On the supply side, the government is providing 1,000 to 1,000 hectares of land for the development of electric vehicle fleets with plug-and-play infrastructure, shared facilities and the necessary external infrastructure.
In addition, the government grants auto-cluster developers funding of 50% of the capital investment.
Financial incentives are given for private charging stations and for the infrastructure for generating and refueling hydrogen.
On the demand side, the state government has created a separate sub-category for electric vehicles and set the tariff at £ 6.70 per unit with no demand fees to encourage their use.
Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) has set up 80 charging stations across the state and delivered 300 electric cars to various government departments. The EESL has decided to set up 400 charging stations in 73 locations across the state.
