Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy: The New policy on 7th August, Delhi electric cars policy was announced, eight months after the Prime Minister-led Cabinet gave it a green flag. Delhi is one of the most polluted cities in the world and its air quality is especially dangerous in early winter.
Greenhouse gas emissions are mixed with wet smoke from farms in Punjab and Haryana, where farmers pour what remains on the farm after harvest. The explosion by firecrackers during Diwali also exacerbates the problem. The policy is announced for a period of three years, after which it can be renewed in its current form or after appropriate amendments. The policy aims to make Delhi an electric vehicle (EV) capital of India & also the world. It has set a target of ensuring that 25% of all motor vehicle registrations in the country’s capital are EVs by 2024. Vehicles, the second largest and most stable source of pollution, account for 25% of PM10 and PM2.5 emissions.
The High Court Pollution Control Officer said that the highest share of nitrogen oxides formed from sulfur dioxide and nitrate particles made from sulfate particles in the city is due to industrial and road pollution. The Delhi government aims to distribute at least 35,000 EVs to groups within a year, while the five-year plan aims to secure 5 lakh EVs. In addition to their lifespan, EVs, which are equivalent to avoiding 1 million CO2 emissions from fuel vehicles, are estimated to be able to prevent oil and liquid natural gas and 4.8 million tons of CO2 (carbon dioxide). It also helps to protect 159 tones of PM 2.5 (good stuffing material). The government believes the policy will run with an incentive, dumping vehicles running on petrol and diesel, and encouraging people to buy new EVs. It has lower interest rates for battery-powered buses and trucks.
The policy mainly focuses on two-wheelers, autos, and carriers, and for the first time, allows passenger boarding services such as Ola and Uber and end-to-end delivery platforms such as Zomato and Swiggy to drive battery-powered bicycles.
This policy recommends changes to the building codes so that all homes and offices are ‘EV ready’ with 20% of all car/parking loads included for charging points. The purchase of charging points encourages the renewal of Rs 6,000 per charging point for the first 30,000 points. This approach refers to the concept of a ‘feebate concept’, which refers to the idea that operators can get a reduction when vehicles that pollute the workload enter while operating. It seeks to create an EV fund that includes unpaid pollution, additional road taxes on petrol and diesel vehicles, “especially luxury cars”, and charges (other than those that use batteries) on traps taken using meat aggregators.
Each month, 50% of the amount collected from that fund is transferred to the EV Fund. If the government is short of funds, Environment will seek the help of the Supreme Court without using the environmental compensation charge, which includes taxes levied on commercial vehicles entering Delhi.
