Delhi has been pressing on pushing EV adoption quite aggressively for some time now as the city faces the issue of intense pollution. In a previous report, the Delhi government announced that it is planning to set up one public charging point for every 15 electric vehicles by 2024.

The EV charging stations will be spread evenly across the city and will be accessible to residents within 3km of travel from anywhere in the city. It has also suggested providing incentives to battery swapping operators. Since two-wheelers and three-wheelers are major sources of pollution in the city, the government is focusing on the large-scale adoption of electric vehicles in these two segments. The Delhi government has also said that it will allow the power distribution companies or DISCOMS to study the effect of EV charging on the grid.
