The Delhi government is doing everything it can to boost electric vehicle infrastructure in the national capital region. Kazam, an EV Charging startup has tied up with BSES, which is responsible for the supply of electricity across Delhi, to provide around 30,000 EV charging stations in the region in the next three years.
BSES includes Delhi’s DISCOMs like BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna, and Tata Power DDL. With this partnership, BSES and Kazam will provide subsidized electric vehicle charging stations in the national capital. The installation of these subsidized electric vehicle charging stations will be for three years through a tender that was released in July 2021.
The Delhi government will provide a subsidy of up to 100 percent of the cost of the slow chargers and up to ₹6,000 per charging point for the first 30,000 charging stations. The subsidy will be applicable for the EV charging stations installed in semi-public locations, which include places like shopping malls, office complexes, and hospitals. It will also apply to places like private properties which include bungalows and apartments.
