This reflects the government’s seriousness in tackling the issue of air pollution by educating citizens about the benefits of using electric vehicles towards the environment and can help them save money by not using fuel-powered vehicles is. In this way, it will make sense among the citizens.
Responsibility towards the Earth and encouraging them to adopt green vehicles. We congratulate the Delhi Government for starting this new initiative and hope that other states will also implement such ideas.
The Delhi government has implemented incentives on the purchase of electric vehicles (EVs) among all states. Kejriwal had said that our vision is that by 2024, 25 percent of the new vehicles should be electric. Around 30,000 subsidy is to be given for 2/3-wheelers, while Rs 1.5 lakh for 4-wheelers. We are starting ‘Switch Delhi’ to make people aware of clean vehicles.
