The company is also working on OPEX model where it installs EV chargers to private owners on lease basis. This will help the company set up, operate and maintain the charging units while the lease amount will be paid to the land owner in the form of actual unit consumption.

Delhi government, which launched its own EV policy last year, has been aggressively pushing customers to shift to EVs in order to bring down pollution in the city. Between September and November this year, electric vehicles accounted for about nine percent of all vehicles sold in the state. The Delhi government says the figure is at least six times higher than the national average and has surpassed the sale of CNG and diesel vehicles in Delhi in the last quarter.
