Maharashtra tourism and environment minister Aaditya Uddhav Thackeray on Monday said the state's comprehensive EV Policy has been developed to fortify Maharashtra's position as a leading destination for electric vehicle manufacturing and utilisation. “With standard operating procedures (SOPs), infrastructure mandates, and incentivization, we look forward to the widespread acceptance of EV's in the state," Thackeray further said.

The minister also said that an aggressive implementation of the EV policy is critical and cannot be fully successful without help from the private sector. The minister urged the hotel industry to come forward for better implementation of the EV policy after a meeting with a hotel group that has committed to convert 100 per cent of its vehicle fleet into electric vehicles. The hotel group has also committed that it will set up EV charging stations across its portfolio hotels and commercial office spaces, reports PTI.
