The Electric Vehicle Manufacturers’ Welfare Trust, which sought manufacturing units in Uttar Pradesh, said the land allotment was likely to be completed within two months

The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) has decided to provide 100-acre land to at least 50 e-rickshaw manufacturers, under the project ‘Electric Vehicle City (EVC)’.

With the allotment of land to interested manufacturers, the units which are currently in Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan will be shifted to one place. The said EVC would be developed in Sector 28 in Greater Noida. Officials have sought details of manufacturers and the size of the land that each manufacturer would require.

Manufacturers believe that once the units shift to UP, the facilities being provided in the state under the Electric Vehicle Policy would help in bringing down the cost of e-rickshaws.

The Electric Vehicle Manufacturers’ Welfare Trust, which sought manufacturing units in Uttar Pradesh, said the land allotment was likely to be completed within two months.

“Manufacturing units are not in one place. While some are in Delhi, others are in Haryana and Rajasthan. Similarly, ancillaries associated with e-rickshaw manufacturing are located at different places,” said chairman of the Trust, Jai Bhagwan Goel to TOI.

“If manufacturing units and ancillaries are at one place, the cost of e-rickshaws will come down. Maximum demand for e-rickshaws is also in UP. The project will help vendors get e-rickshaws at a reasonable price,” Goel added.

Owners of ancillaries units will also be allotted land as per their requirements.

“The list of manufacturers and land requirements will be handed over to YEIDA CEO Arun Veer Singh in a few days,” Goel said.

Under the Electric Vehicle Policy, the UP government provides a 50 percent rebate on interest against loans, which is borne by the state government. In addition to this, 5 per cent subsidy is provided for research and development, complete waiver on electric duty for first 10 years, 90 per cent rebate on State GST.
