According to media reports, the government is planning to spend Rs 787 crore from the environment cess to buy these vehicles.

Hindustan Times reported, Delhi’s bus fleet currently stands at 5,425 against the requirement of 11,000, which is mandated by the Delhi High Court. Both the DTC and cluster buses need to have a fleet of 5,500 buses each. While at least 769 buses have been added to the cluster or orange bus fleet in the last four years, not a single one has been introduced by the DTC since the Commonwealth Games in 2010.

Recently the government of India is upbeat about the electric vehicle segment and asked all the government ministers to use electric cars. Car manufacturers such as Tata, Nissan and Mahindra and Mahindra are also in the queue to manufacture electric vehicles.
