The Delhi government announced plans to ramp up infrastructure to support more electric vehicles in the Capital. As part of the plan, about 1,000 new charging points for EVs and 103 battery swapping stations will be set up by Delhi Transco Limited (DTL) in the next few weeks. The first set of charging stations are expected to be inaugurated next month.

The Kejriwal-government will be joining hands with discoms and civic bodies to create a coordinated strategy for rapid expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, an official statement said on Thursday. Currently, there are a total of 2,356 charging points and 234 battery-swapping stations currently operational at 1,892 locations in Delhi.
