EV Policy - Delhi


Delhi realises that a new approach is required to encourage the adoption of EVs and hence sets up to put a comprehensive policy in place for providing required impetus. The UT is planning to implement its EV plan by:
1. Providing financial incentives.
2. Waiver on road tax and registration fees.
3. Establishing wide network of charging station.
4. Establishment of a dedicated EV cells and developing intensive public outreach program focused on creating awareness.
5. Setting up of EV skill centers

Demand Incentives

  • ROAD TAX : Waived off till the end of policy period.
  • VEHICLE REGISTRATION : Waived off till the end of policy period.
  • DEMAND GENERATION SUBSIDY (4W) : A Purchase Incentive of Rs. 10,000/- per kWh of battery capacity shall be provided per electric four-wheeler (subject to a maximum incentive of Rs.1,50,000/- per vehicle) to the registered owners of the first 1000 e-cars to be registered in Delhi after the issuance of this policy.
Charging station subsidy

PRIVATE CP: The GNCTD shall provide a grant of 100% for the purchase of charging equipment up to Rs. 6000/- per charging point for the first 30,000 charging points. Grants shall be available for chargers that are either single phase or three phase input but comply with all other BEVC– AC001 specifications.

Battery recycling subsidy

Electric Vehicle batteries typically need to be replaced once they have degraded to operating at 70-80% of their capacities. EVs are therefore going to outlive the batteries powering them, with a vehicle requiring about two batteries in a 10-year life span. Batteries that have reached their end of life shall have to be either reused or recycled.

Skill development

Creating a hub for EV training:
Vocational courses will be designed to train EV drivers, mechanics and charging station staff in partnership with auto OEMs and the Energy Operators. These courses will be delivered through the World Class Skill Centres (WCSCs) set up by the GNCTD and the space and faculty for the WCSCs will be provided at concessional rates.
Private sector partners – i.e., auto OEMs and the Energy Operators will be allowed to conduct their own captive staff training at the WCSCs.
The WCSCs will also offer short re-training courses for ICE mechanics who would like to be trained in repairing and servicing EVs. These part time courses will be offered through the year at concessional fees.
The GNCTD will conduct regular recruitment fairs at the WCSCs for private sector recruiters, desirous of hiring the trained personnel.
Setting up a Centre of Excellence:
A Centre of Excellence will be set up at one of the Central or State Universities within Delhi, and will be funded by the GNCTD.
This Centre will focus on the design & use of EVs, improving the usage and efficiency of EVs and charging equipment.
