Govt to allow e-payments for charging electrics cars

The government will allow electric car users to pay for charging of their electric vehicles through digital means, including BHIM app and Bharat QR code.

The government has accepted suggestions of the Committee for Standardisation of the Protocol for Charging Infrastructure in this regard.

In its report, the committee also mooted uniform standards for EV charging stations in India, which will enable electric vehicles of all models by different manufacturers to be charged at any station.

The expert panel also made a case for setting up massive charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, as the government eyes aggressive adoption of EVs in India as an alternate clean energy mode of transport to check pollution.
