Publication Year: 2019
The Urban Development and Housing Department of Madhya Pradesh published “Madhya Pradesh Electric Vehicle (EV) Policy 2019” on 1st November 2019 to accomplish the objectives of ‘Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI). Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI), under Madhya Pradesh Electric Vehicle (EV) Policy 2019, dedicated to accelerating the deployment of EV’s. The government of Madhya Pradesh has actively taken the subject of EVI. Adoption of Electric Vehicle for Road Transport contributes to a wide range of goals. These include better air quality, reduction in noise pollution, enhanced energy security and in combination with a low carbon power generation mix, reduced greenhouse gas emission.
The main objective of EVI is to bring about a material improvement in air quality by bringing down emissions from the transport sector. To do so, this policy will seek to drive rapid adoption of Electronic Vehicles (EV) in a manner where they contribute to 25% of all new vehicle registration by 2024. Currently, the local bodies of the state lack the initiative required to improve air quality, but this policy will play a pivotal role in this. In addition, there is a pressing need to inculcate behavioural change among the citizens and capacity among stakeholders to ensure successful implementation of EVI in the state.
This policy shall act as a guiding document for the local bodies by setting the context, priorities and direction to ensure proper implementation of EVI across all the areas of the state.
