Delhi: No more govt. subsidies on electric cars

Registration fees and road tax waivers on electric cars are likely to continue.

The government of Delhi has withdrawn the subsidies on electric cars.

As per the Delhi EV policy 2020, the government was offering a Rs. 1.5 lakh subsidy on electric cars. However, this was only valid on the first 1,000 EVs registered. Reports suggest that the government has completed the disbursement of subsidies under this policy.

Kailash Gehlot, Transport Minister of Delhi, stated that the electric car segment had received the required push (with the subsidies) and now the focus would be on 2-wheelers, freight and public transport segments, as they constitute a major chunk of the 10 million-plus vehicles registered in Delhi.

The state also offers a waiver on registration fees and road tax. These are likely to continue.
