DDC vice-chairman Jasmine Shah said with help of shopping malls the commission is trying to encourage electric mobility and reduce pollution in the city. “In addition to incentives and the guidebook launched today, Delhi government will also provide hand-holding support through the state EV Cell to all the malls that commit to install chargers at parking slots in the next 6 months," added Shah.
