To encourage the adoption of electric vehicles, Delhi Power Minister Satyendar Jain has directed buildings in the Indian Capital to reserve 5% of parking space for electric cars.
The reserved EV parking spots are also required to have suitable slow EV chargers, and the instruction is only for buildings with parking capacities of more than 100 vehicles.
To speed up the process, a Rs. 6,000 (RM340) subsidy is given for every charging point installed. The deadline for buildings to comply with the new requirement is December 2021.
