10 Electric Cars Will Be Used By The Indian Army In Delhi

The Indian Army has finally joined other ministries in using electric vehicles with its first batch of cars to be used by Delhi-based Army officers.

With several departments using electric vehicles to replace fossil fuel ones, the Indian government has been focusing on heading towards a zero-emission environment. Now the Indian Army has finally joined the wagon with its first batch of EVs to be used by Delhi-based Army officers.

EESL or Energy Efficiency Services Ltd, a public sector which is in charge of electric cars procurement for the governmental departments has just delivered to the Indian Army 10 electric cars. For now, this is only a pilot project as more electric vehicles will be added later.

Before the Indian Army, the Ministry of Environment had announced its electric cars induction for its top officials. Other ministries have also taken similar steps to follow the Finance Ministry’s directive. The directive requests all government bodies to prioritize EVs over IC engine ones when doing official tasks.

Moreover, to make EVs more attractive to the public, the government has taken measures. In the Union Budget 2019 which was recently announced, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharama made an announcement on GST reduction for EVs from 12% to just 5%. For people who apply for a loan to buy electric vehicles can get a maximum tax rebate of Rs 1.5 lakh for loan interest.

The main goal is to increase the country’s zero-emission vehicles’ adoption. These vehicles will not only help lower the amount of vehicular emissions which is responsible for worsening the country’s air pollution levels but also cut down the dependence of India on importing fossil fuels for powering the transportation.
