New Delhi: Many companies, including Tata, Tesla, Audi and Nissan are already building and introducing electric vehicles. With petrol and diesel prices rising and fears that the fuel supply in India will decline significantly in the next few years, people are favouring electric cars and bikes.
Similarly, the government has decided to set up special zones for EV (electric vehicle) charging stations to inspire people to use eco-friendly electric vehicles. Special zones will be developed for electric vehicles. Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced in today’s budget that the battery exchange policy will be announced soon.
In his Budget 2022 speech, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced that the government will soon implement a battery-swapping policy and develop “special mobility zones” for electric vehicles (EVs).
The battery exchange policy is expected to provide a major boost to the e-commerce distribution and three-wheeler transport service sector. This is because both of these categories are bound by time constraints. Charged with an existing battery will be more convenient if a quick battery exchange is implemented.
To promote change in the use of public transport in urban areas, special mobility zones will be introduced with zero fossil fuel policies. Nirmala Sitharaman, in his budget speech, said that a battery exchange policy will be introduced soon considering the space constraints in urban areas.
India is projected to grow by 2030%. 30 per cent private car, per cent. Seventy percent of commercial vehicles, 40 per cent buses and 50 per cent It is targeted to sell 80 percent of electric powered bikes and three wheelers.

EV charging infrastructure in the country, which allows owners to charge their electric vehicles using existing electrical connections in their homes or offices.

According to statistics from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, India has 9,74,313 registered electric vehicles. However, according to the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), only 1,028 public charging stations (PCS) have been installed across the country so far. Currently, the price of 2 to 3 e-car variants in India is less than Rs 15 lakh. Lack of charging infrastructure is one of the main reasons for the slow sales of electric powered vehicles in India, apart from the high price of EVs. Thus, it is decided to increase the charging stations as soon as possible.
