In August, the Delhi government had launched a new electric vehicle policy to boost the EV industry and Delhi’s economy and to reduce the pollution levels in the State. “After launching this policy, we expect registration of 5 lakh new electric vehicles in the next 5 years,” Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said.
As per the Delhi EV policy, the Delhi government will provide purchase incentives of Rs 30,000 to electric two-wheelers, e-rickshaws, and goods carriers. For electric cars, the purchase incentives range from Rs 10,000 to Rs 150,000. To get the benefits of this subsidy the electric vehicles must be eligible in terms of performance and efficiency criteria mentioned in the central government’s Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles in India Phase II (FAME India Phase II) policy.
“Delhi Government will provide financial assistance to those buying electric vehicles under Electric Vehicle Policy. Financial assistance of Rs 30,000 will be given on the purchase of 2-wheelers, Rs 1.5 lakh on cars and Rs 30,000 on auto-rickshaws and e-rickshaws,” CM Kejriwal had mentioned.
Recently, the Delhi government’s transport department has issued a notification announcing that it is exempting the road tax on electric vehicles from October 10. This initiative is taken under its new electric vehicle policy said Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot.
According to the Delhi government statement, people have been asked to give their suggestions on exemption of the registration fees of electric vehicles. The lieutenant governor of the National Capital Territory of Delhi exempted tax levied on battery-operated vehicles with immediate effect. This decision is another crucial step towards pollution-free Delhi said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
He is taking various steps to reduce the pollution levels in Delhi such as Green Delhi app, creation of a war room to monitor steps on a real-time basis, processing liquid solution for farm fields to prevent stubble burning, implementing hotspot-specific action plans would be a part of the campaign.
This campaign will continue throughout the winters when pollution reaches peaks and forces Delhi to go for a public health emergency every year. The government will take several initiatives such as a 24×7 war room, pollution hotspots and the repair of potholes.
The policy aims to increase the number of electric vehicles on city roads in the coming years by providing charging infrastructure and incentives to EV buyers. The policy aims to register 5 lakh electric vehicles in the city by 2024.
