Delhi Electric Vehicles Subsidy Scheme 2020

Year after year we experience the perils of climate change. And for all the years that people carried on with sheer ignorance, denying the very existence of global warming, we are now getting to face the full brunt of a very irate mother Nature.

To curb the effects of global warming due to increased emissions of vehicles, the government of Delhi approved the Delhi Electric Vehicles subsidy scheme, to encourage residents to move to a much more eco-friendly option for their commute.

Vision and goal behind launching the Delhi Electric Vehicles subsidy 2020

The main objective of the Delhi Electric Vehicle Subsidy policy 2020 is to establish Delhi – which has its reputation tarnished lately as one of the most polluted cities in Asia – as the Electronic Vehicle or EV capital of India and to accelerate the pace of EV adoption in people’s lifestyle.

This scheme is aimed at brining EV adoption across several vehicular segments especially in the mass category of two wheelers and public/private transport vehicles, good carriers, etc.

The policy is even aimed at brining Battery Electric Vehicles into people’s lives at a rapid pace so that it can contribute to 25% of all new vehicle registrations by 2024 and bring about drastic improvement in Delhi’s environment by brining down emission levels due to the transport sector.

Implementation of the Delhi Electric Vehicle subsidy scheme

There are several pointers being looked at before implementing the policy out to the masses. These pointers discuss how the scheme can be implemented to the people of Delhi in a seamless fashion. These pointers are mentioned herewith

  1. Financial incentives: People are almost often driven by financial motives. By offering subsidies on electric vehicles, more people opting for these vehicles simply due to its cost-efficiency.
  2. Waivers: Those who opt for electric vehicles will have their road tax and registration fees waived off
  3. Establishing charging spots: to make the commute easier and hassle-free, the Delhi government intends to set up charging stations and swappable battery stations and aims to maintain a publicly owned database of the same.
  4. Employment: The switch to electric vehicles will also open up job roles to many, who, when trained, will offer assistance regarding the EV ecosystem and make the EV experience all the more lucid overall.
  5. Eco-friendly: The main assistance for the implementation of the EV policy is to create a recycling ecosystem for car batteries that will eventually reduce automobile waste and contribute to a greener and better future for Delhi.

In conclusion

There are several Electronic vehicles that are awaiting the implementation of this scheme. From buses to cars and even two-wheelers, the possibilities seem to be endless. With this scheme on the horizon, things look a lot more promising for Delhi, especially in the light of the health hazards its people are facing lately.

With the Electronic vehicle subsidy, more people will now opt for not only a cheaper option of commuting but also pride over being a more eco-friendly person. It is time to heal nature, one outing at a time.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
