EV Policy draft was presented in November 2018. The primary objective of Delhi EV Policy
is to bring about a material improvement in Delhi’92s air quality by bringing down emissions
from the transport sector. To do so, this policy will seek to drive rapid adoption of
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) in a manner where they contribute to 25 per cent of all
new vehicle registrations by 2023.
This policy will also seek to put in place measures to support the creation of jobs in
driving, selling, financing, servicing and charging of EVs.
Lets understand the highlights of the EV Policy.
