EV charging stations business
Individuals may soon be able to open public electric vehicle charging stations without applying for licences, though there will be a cap on the tariff they can charge from EV owners.
The government has not set any qualification criteria for opening public charging stations but these will be monitored and have to meet specifications and performance standards set by the power ministry, a senior government official said.
The government wants to have public charging stations at every three kilometers and has identified nine cities including Delhi, Pune, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad where it will start pilot projects through some central public sector undertakings.
