The move comes as part of the Delhi EV Policy, which is considered one of the most comprehensive EV policies in India. Speaking about this policy, Kailash Gahlot said that the OEMs can now apply to the transport department for various eligible models under this scheme. He also said that list of approved electric cycles will be published on the Delhi government's dedicated website.
