As the electric mobility space in the country continues to grow, state-owned oil company Indian Oil is planning to set up electric vehicle charging points at 100 of its outlets across Maharashtra, including five in the Marathwada region, by the end of this fiscal, as per a top company official.

“Five will be installed in the Marathwada region. Wherever needed, the charging guns will be upgraded from 15 KW capacities to 45 KW. If needed we can install a new facility also,” said IOC General Manager (Retail Sales) Ajay Kumar Shrivastav.

While talking about the comparison of fuel sale, Shrivastav said, “The sale of petrol has reached to the pre-COVID-19 situation but there is still a shortfall of 5-6 per cent in terms of diesel sale.”

Shrivastav revealed this plan while attending a function in Aurangabad, in which the only fuel pump with electric charging, petrol and diesel, as well as a Khadi outlet, was dedicated to the nation under ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’.

As per officials, the Aurangabad rural police-run outlet that became operational last year is the only outlet selected in ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ across Maharashtra.
