The Government of India (GoI) has been pushing the EV agenda by way of policies to support the adoption of Electric Vehicles.

On policy, that has been in place for long but not implemented was the EV charging metering under a subsidised rate.

Moreover, individual states like Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana published their EV policies with this subsidised energy rates on offer.

But on the ground, while some EV charging stations have come up, they have been connected to the base meters which meant higher prices for the consumers.

With the support of the Government of Maharashtra and the MAITRI program and installation by MSEDCL, the state of Maharashtra has installed the first EV billing meter in the country.

Commenting on the launch, Magenta Power, Director, Maxson Lewis said, this is a first of its kind initiative in India which now opens up the nation to setup such charging points under the governments EV support program. The idea is to make the charging experience across India as convenient as possible. While this meter setup is a small step it is a significant one in India’s EV journey. This meter has been setup at a charging station installed by Magenta Power in Navi Mumbai.

The company will be deploying the new EV billing meters on all its 6 charging stations already in operation. It is planning a slew of new charging stations on other important highways under the EV billing meters scheme.
