government land to government or public agencies and private entities for
setting up charging stations on a revenue-sharing basis.
charging station is largest in India with 96 charging points for 4 wheelers.
Previously, India’s largest EV charging station was situated in Navi Mumbai
with 16 AC & 4 DC charging ports for EVs. This EV charging station will not
only boost electric vehicles industry in the region, but will also act as a
benchmark for large EV charging stations across the nation in future. During
the program, representatives from the government agencies were given a guided
tour of the facility and provided with information regarding various government
standard compliances and industry best practices followed in the establishment
and operations of the station.
Sinha, National Program Director, Ease of Doing Business program and Project
Director of National Highway for Electric Vehicle said, “India is on the verge
of making investment in E-mobility charging infra setup which is highly
competitive compared to fuel stations in terms of ease in licensing,
commissioning, electrification, certification and to draw revenue equivalence
with existing petrol pumps. Electric vehicle charging station of this size and
magnitude is rare and will be instrumental for the industry to experience
actual Ease of Doing Business in smooth ‘Certification Compliance’ and ‘Safety
Standards’. Electric vehicles are the future and this station is our prototyped
preparation for that future. This ultra-modern station is now open to meet all
the regulatory standards set by the government. It will also set the standard
as a prototype station for all the upcoming EV charging stations of National
Highways for Electric Vehicle (NHEV) pilot project making India’s first 500 km e-highway
between Jaipur -Delhi-Agra”.
his inaugural address Sudhendu J. Sinha, Adviser (Infrastructure, Connectivity
– Transport and Electric Mobility), NITI Aayog, said that “India is committed
towards the fight against environmental degradation and to achieve carbon

these targets. The EV charging station inaugurated today fast forwards India
entry into the EV era and opens doors for faster adoption of EVs. Not only will
this station encourage more people to invest in electric vehicles, but also
motivate people to invest in the EV charging infra business.”

such chargers can charge 288 EV every day. While our fast DC chargers can
charge a vehicle in less than 2 hours and can comfortably charge 12 EVs every
day at this station. We have 24 such DC 5KW chargers to charge 288 EVs in a
