New Delhi. Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot said that 5534 new EV three-wheelers have been registered after the introduction of Delhi EV policy. We are constantly receiving positive feedback from OEMs that many people have expressed a desire to switch from ICE to electric vehicle.
Delhi government has been giving a subsidy of 30 thousand rupees for the promotion of e-rickshaws for the last few years. After the EV policy, the same subsidy is being given on e-cart loaders and e-autos.
Up to Rs 7500 is being given for scraping and de-registering old CNG auto rickshaws registered in Delhi. Road tax and registration fee is also waived for all electric three wheelers.
In Delhi, e-auto can become a means of traveling to any place. Delhi government will soon come up with a scheme to facilitate easy registration of e-autos in Delhi.
Kailash Gehlot said that under the EV policy by Delhi government, the subsidy given on electric three-wheelers reduces their price by 26 percent. About 29 thousand rupees can be saved annually by purchasing an electric three wheeler auto. Similarly, the subsidy on electric e-rickshaw reduces its price by 33 percent.
Under Delhi’s EV policy, 177 three-wheeler models are available for purchase and 68 manufacturers are offering scrap incentives.
Delhiites have shared the experience of furthering the campaign and switching to EVs under the #DilliKeGreenWarrior initiative.
