    NITI Aayog plans EV charging infrastructure in Delhi-NCR

    NITI Aayog, the government think-tank, has proposed to set up 46 DC quick-charging and 89 AC slow charging stations in the Gurgaon-IGI-South Delhi-Noida corridor, with the first batch of installations set to happen this month.

    The focus of the proposal is on developing an electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the Delhi-NCR region.

    The pilot project proposes charging infrastructure across 55 locations. Development of this project will require co-operation among state governments, selected government authorities and companies, as well as some private enterprises.

    Depending on key learnings from the ‘quick pilot’, NITI Aayog will consider further expansion of the project in Delhi-NCR and other cities across India.
