CSC SPV Launches Rural e-Mobility Program to Promote EVs in Rural India

Common Services Centre (CSC) e-Governance Services Limited, a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) by the Ministry of Electronics and IT, has announced a rural e-mobility program urging people to switch to electric vehicles (EVs) to preserve the environment and reduce carbon emissions.

CSC scheme is one of the mission mode projects under the Digital India Program. CSC SPV provides a centralized collaborative framework for the delivery of services to citizens through 3.5 lakh CSCs across the country, besides systematic viability and sustainability of the scheme.

Under the new rural e-mobility program, CSC SPV will facilitate loans for the purchase of EVs and focus on setting up charging infrastructure in rural areas.

In conversation with PTI, CSC Managing Director, Dinesh Tyagi stated, “CSC Rural e-Mobility program will write a new chapter in rural empowerment as it would increase mobility at low costs. It has much significance in rural India where connectivity is a major issue. It will not only add environmental benefits but also create new models of inclusive development in terms of connectivity in remote corners of our country,” said in a statement.

Explaining their objectives and plans, Tyagi further added, “We are focusing on rural areas for which we have launched the Rural e-Mobility Programme at our 100 CSC centers. We are providing e-scooters and e-rickshaws in rural and semi-urban areas through CSCs. We have tied up with various e-vehicles manufacturers and also financial institutions for offering attractive loans to people in rural areas.”

Additionally, CSC has planned to organize roadshows and bike rallies across India to promote the Rural e-Mobility Programme. “We are also setting up charging infrastructure at our CSCs for the convenience of our customers. We will soon expand our e-mobility program by adding more CSC centers every month in rural and semi-urban areas,” said Dinesh Tyagi in that statement.
