The policy will help the state in rolling out a new range of benefits to push forward the EV infrastructure of the state.
“There will be several incentives for vehicle manufacturers, and also sops for setting up charging stations and other infrastructure. The policy has been prepared in consultations with the industry players and most of those expectations have been included in the policy,” the official said today.
