The Delhi government has approved more than 100 models of e-vehicles, including 45 makes of e-rickshaw and 12 of four-wheelers, for subsidy under the new electric vehicles policy, Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Friday.
“E-vehicles priced up to Rs 15 lakh will be eligible for the purchase incentive(subsidy), besides exemption of road tax and registration fee.
Electric vehicles having a price over Rs 15 lakh will not get subsidy but will be eligible for road tax and registration fee exemptions,” he told a press conference.
The minister launched a website having details of approved models, dealers, subsidy disbursal process as well as the network of 70 charging stations across the city.
Gahlot said that the whole process of subsidy payment will be online. Anyone purchasing an electric vehicle will require sales invoice of the vehicle, his aadhaar number and a cancelled cheque to claim the subsidy.
The dealer will process the subsidy claim on his end through the website.
The claims will be verified by the motor licensing officers concerned and forwarded to banks for subsidy payment.
The minister said the subsidy will be applicable from August 7, 2020 when the policy was notified. Road tax and registration fee exemptions will be applicable from October 10 and October 15, when the respective notifications were issued, he said.
He also said 36 manufacturers have been registered with a network of 98 dealers across the city.
