Kundra said that they aim to align the incentives for two-wheelers with those of the cab aggregator program in our upcoming at the summit on clean transport, organised by the International Council on Clean Transportation and India’s G20 Secretariat.

Transport commissioner, Ashish Kundra, announced on Monday that the forthcoming EV policy would emphasize the expansion of charging infrastructure, stimulating the demand for two-wheelers, and making the subsidy schemes more lucrative.

The Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy of 2020, which lapsed on August 8, is currently in effect until the introduction of a fresh policy.

During a summit centred around clean transportation – a collaborative effort between the International Council on Clean Transportation and India’s G20 Secretariat – Kundra intended to align the incentives for two-wheelers with the cab aggregator program in the imminent policy. This cab aggregator scheme, presently in its feedback phase, restricts its services exclusively to electric two-wheelers.

The prevailing EV policy permits a subsidy of INR 5,000 per kWh of battery capacity for two-wheelers, while three-wheelers receive a flat INR 30,000 subsidy, irrespective of the total cost or battery size. The first 1,000 EVs registered under the scheme received a subsidy of INR 10,000 per kWh battery capacity for four-wheelers.

Kundra elaborated on the government’s vision to electrify 80% of the bus fleet by 2025. The policy might also encompass light and medium-duty intra-city trucks or commercial vehicles.

He further expressed that the two-wheeler and three-wheeler cargo segments would rapidly expand. Although cars might evolve slower, an expedited expansion of the charging infrastructure could potentially revolutionize the scenario.

Vinay Kumar Singh, MD of NCRTC, emphasized the speed benefits of their transport system, allowing travel speeds of up to 90-100kmph. He envisions the NCRTC laying down a comprehensive “network of networks” to intertwine various public transport modes.
