Here’s some good news for those planning to buy an eco-friendly electric vehicle. Municipal corporations in Delhi have decided to set up a large number of electric charging stations in the city during the next one year.
Senior officials say that their target is to provide at least one station in an area of 3 sqkm so that people owning electric vehicles are incentivised. South Delhi Municipal Corporation has identified 75 locations for creating charging infrastructure, the north corporation has finalised 127 such charging points and the east corporation has shortlisted 93 locations for creating charging stations.
In a city hard hit by pollution, electric vehicles are a necessity and a boon. But without proper infrastructure, few would be enthused to shift to these environment-friendly vehicles. The decision to have more charging points will surely encourage prospective buyers. It also makes life easier for those who already have one.TimesView
