New Delhi and nearby cities of the NCR are set to witness a surge in the number of electric vehicle charging stations in the region, with the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) all set to install 200 more charging stations in the region in the next three months, reports Livemint.

As per Saurabh Kumar, the managing director of the EESL, the institution will be laying out most of these charging stations in South Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and some other parts of Delhi.

He also added that locations with very high footfall such as Connaught Place, Khan Market, among other have been chosen. This has been done from the point of view that the largest set of consumers will be from the shared mobility space, offered by taxi aggregators.

The EESL expects a surge in the electric vehicle based shared mobility because of Government of India’s Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME-II) scheme.
