In the Maharashtra EV Policy 2021, care has been taken for startups and companies as well as customers. The main goal of this policy is to accelerate the adoption of battery-powered electric vehicles, for which the government has also set a target of bringing ten percent EVO by 2025. Taxis (fleet service) and care have been taken in the policy. To encourage this segment, the goal is to bring 25% BEV to market by 2025. Not only that, the Department of Transportation already plans to electrify 15 percent of existing buses.
Speaking of customer benefits, the government is also talking to financial institutions and banks for government education and low interest rates. The maximum benefits for two-wheelers and three-wheelers have been fixed at Rs 10,000 and Rs 30,000 respectively. Similarly, the maximum incentive for a four wheeler is Rs 1.50 lakh. Customers will also be entitled to an early bird discount if they purchase a car before 31 December 2021.
However, here again it comes to the charging infrastructure, which is addressed in this policy. The new policy says that a public charging station will be built in every 3 km radius in the state. If this step is taken quickly, then of course a large number of people can go in electric vehicles in the near future.
According to the policy, electrification of vehicles will be started in all the cities of the state at different stages and from 2022, all government vehicles in big cities will be electrified.
