The Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) announced the Delhi Electric Vehicle Policy in 2020, with a vision to promote the adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in the city. The Policy aims to improve Delhi’s air quality by driving rapid adoption of EVs with the goal of reaching 25% of all new vehicle sales by 2024.

Through this guidebook, GNCTD seeks to encourage all residential societies (Old neighbourhood areas, planned colonies, DDA flats, Cooperative Group Housing Societies, Government housing societies, employer housing etc.) based out of Delhi, to join hands with the Delhi Government in promoting electric vehicles (EVs) by adopting EV charging in their residential societies. Through this document, the authors aim to guide residential societies in understanding the importance of EV charging, support e£ective decision-making and set out the way forward for the planning and implementation of EV charging stations in the parking space of the societies. The document also aims to address some of the challenges (such as lack of space, capital investment, power load management etc.) residential societies might face while implementing EV charging
