The National Institute of Transforming India (NITI Aayog) has published a handbook to assist state governments and local governments in developing rules and regulations for the establishment of electric car charging networks (EV). The objective is to upgrade charging facilities and hasten the region's shift to electric vehicles.
NITI Aayog, the
Ministry of Power (MoP), the Department of Science and Technology (DST), the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), and the World Resources Institute (WRI) India
collaborated on the
Handbook for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Implementation
. The Handbook lays out a step-by-step process for implementing authorities and other parties involved in the
planning, authorization, and implementation of EV charging infrastructure.
It provided an outline of the technical, legal, and governance mechanisms needed to make electric vehicle charging more simple. It focuses on the current needs for charging infrastructure development while taking into account the sector's changing nature
mobility is a global strategy in the fight against climate change, and India has voiced high ambitions in this area. 'The manual discusses the common issues that local governments experience while putting EV charging networks in place. Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman of the NITI Aayog, said,
