The Indian Hotels Company Ltd. introduced an electric vehicle charging station for electric vehicles (EVs) in Vivanta Guwahati in collaboration with Tata Power, which has given the Assam government’s Electric Vehicle Policy a boost.
The station has been installed with all the safety features specified by the government directive and has the facility to plug in four EVs at a time.
The business declared that the EV station and its services are conveniently located on the grounds of the Vivanta hotel in Khanapara, Guwahati, a division of the Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), for the use of all hotel occupants, guests, and the general public.
The company explained that owners of EVs, including two-wheelers, must schedule spots on an app and make payments online.
Arup Kumar Misra, Chairman of the Pollution Control Board for Assam, executed the inauguration with committee members in the presence of representatives from Tata Power, Jayanta Das, the Area Director of North East, Kathmandu, Bhutan, and Darjeeling.
The IHCL framework for directing positive transformation with the Taj core value of Trust, Awareness, and Joy has been used to guide this initiative, which is known as “paathya.”
Das stated that IHCL’s dedication to constructing a sustainable future, utilizing renewable resources, caring for & nurturing our natural environment, and protecting planet Earth is demonstrated by the installation of the EV station on the hotel grounds.
He further stated that the company intends to put similar stations in other units as well. This is the first such service at any Tata Group hotel in the northeast.
In addition to converting all government cars to electric vehicles by 2030, the Assam government has set a goal of converting the whole fleet of public transportation buses to electric buses (Battery Electric Vehicles) by that time.
After 2025, only electric vehicles will be available for purchase, and all business fleets and logistical vehicles powered by fossil fuels will be phased out in all cities by 2030.
