Staff Reporter /NEW DELHI

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today launched a new electric vehicle policy to reduce air pollution and boost the economy along with creating new jobs in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference the chief minister said, “We have notified the Electric Vehicle Policy today. With this policy, we aim to generate employment to give a boost to Delhi’s economy and reduce pollution levels in the national capital.”

“After launching this policy, we expect registration of 5 lakh new electric vehicles in the next 5 years,” he added.

Announcing a ‘scrapping incentive’ under the policy, Kejriwal further said that up to Rs 30,000 for 2-wheelers, autos, e-rickshaws and up to Rs 1.5 lakh for cars will be given as financial assistance under the electric vehicle 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 told media.

A dedicated ‘EV Cell’ will be set up to implement the policy. The Delhi government will soon form the ‘State Electric Vehicle Board’ in this regard, Kejriwal said.

“Under the policy, 200 charging stations will be set up in one year for the ease of e-vehicle users,” the CM said, claiming that Delhi’s new Electric Vehicle Policy will be country’s progressive policy.
