Electric Vehicle Policy Electric Vehicle Policy

Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy 2018 (Draft)

Adoption of Electric Vehicles (‘EVs’) for road transport contributes to a wide range of goals. These include - better air quality, reduced noise pollution, enhanced energy security and in combination with a low carbon power generation mix, reduced greenhouse gas emissions. With vehicular pollution being a consistent source of air pollution in the National Capital Territory of Delhi (‘Delhi’) and contributing up to 30% of particulate pollution, rapid adoption of zero emission electric vehicles is of great importance to the city

The Draft Delhi EV Policy 2018, to be notified by the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (‘GNCTD’) and which will remain valid for five years from the date of notification, recognises that a new approach is required to kick-start EV adoption in Delhi. It will therefore seek to put in place measures that address the key hurdles to EV adoption. The GNCTD will also develop a communication plan focused on driving awareness regarding the benefits of adopting electric vehicles and the key elements of this policy

This policy will apply exclusively to Battery Electric Vehicles (as defined in Annexure -1, FAME India). Mild Hybrid, Strong Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles will not be targeted by this policy. ‘FAME India’ in this policy refers to the Scheme for Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles in India as notified on 13th March, 2015 by the Govt. of India and any subsequent amendments thereof
