State-owned Indian Oil is planning to set up electric vehicle charging points at 100 of its outlets across Maharashtra, including five in the Marathwada region, a senior official said here on Friday.
Its General Manager (Retail Sales) Ajay Kumar Shrivastav attended a function in Aurangabad, in which the only fuel pump with electric charging, petrol and diesel, as well as a Khadi outlet, was dedicated to the nation under ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’.
The Aurangabad rural police-run outlet that became operational last year is the only outlet selected in ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ across Maharashtra, the officials said.
Indian Oil Head (Maharashtra Office) Anirban Ghosh inaugurated this pump through an online medium in the presence of DYSP Vishal Nehul, an official said.
While talking to reporters after the event, Shrivastav said, “We have added a facility of charging electric vehicles here after the announcement of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ initiative on this pump.”
