To speed up the single-window process for the installation of the charging stations for the EVs at private and semi-public areas in the city, the Delhi Government has made the decision to fuse more private charging infrastructure providers.
Power Distribution Company (DISCOM) BSES Rajdhani Power Limited is the firm that is assigned to apply the policy and install the charging points for the EVs. It also has suggested impaneling three private discoms- BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL), and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL).
Under the proposed plan, the purchase and the installation of the EV chargers will be appropriable under two options- individual purchase and a monthly subscription basis.
It also stated, “The empanelment will be accompanied by the roll-out of an innovative, single-window facility for installation of EV chargers in private and semi-public spaces in Delhi, which includes residential spaces like apartments and group housing societies, institutional buildings like hospitals, and commercial spaces like malls and theatres,”
The Dialogue and Development Commission (DDC) is a foremost think tank of the AAP- led Delhi Government and is also administering the EV policy. They said that once the facility is rolled out, the consumers will be more than capable to analyze the costs and features of different chargers on discom websites, order a charger, and also schedule its installation with a single call.
Jasmine Shah, Vice Chairman of DDC said, “Delhi will soon be the only city where anyone can get an EV charger installed, net of Delhi Govt subsidy, by making a single phone call or applying online,”
The turnout plan will only secure a single-window process for consumers where they conjure for the charger installation will be replaced by vendors of EV chargers fused by discoms through a lucent process. Consumers will be able to apply for a sovereign electrical connection with a special EV tariff. This particular scheme will also provide the disbursal of a grant of 100% for the purchase of the charger up to Rs 6000 per charging point for the very first 30,000 charging points.
The ambition of the EV scheme of the Delhi Government that was launched in the year 2020 focusing to decrease fuel-run vehicles by up to 25% by the year 2024. The Government has been facilitating over 5000 charger points for EVs.
The Delhi Government is advertising the EV policy through the “Switch Delhi” campaign.To motivate people to adopt EVs instead of combustion vehicles, it is offering a subsidy of Rs 10,000 per kWh to the first 1000 EVs or e-4W with a cap of Rs 150,000 per vehicle.
A subsidy of Rs 5000 per kWh of the battery capacity up to Rs 30,000 is also to be provided on the purchase of each e-2W, auto-rickshaw, and freight vehicle.
