Public charging infrastructure will be rolled out in a phased manner. In the 1st phase, to be executed over a 3-year period, all mega cities with a population of 4 million and above, along with existing expressways and important highways connected with these cities, will be covered. In the 2nd phase, spanning over the 2 subsequent years, big cities such as state capitals and headquarters of Union Territories will be covered, along with the highways connected with these cities.

In related news, the Department of Heavy Industries has proposed slashing of customs duty on parts of electric vehicles. Currently, spare parts imported to manufacture electric vehicles are not exempt from import tariff.
