The EV-Yatra app allows charge point operators (CPOs) to register on the platform and log details on the National Online Database. This will essentially help electric vehicle users to find public EV charging stations in their vicinity easily. The app will be able to offer details such as the types of chargers installed at the station, availability of charging slots, tariff to charge the EV, service and more.

Users can also pre-book a charging slot using the EV-Yatra app. It is available on Google PlayStore and Apple Store for download and is compatible with most smartphones. The app is currently available in English and Hindi languages.
