News: MCG to set up four charging stations for e-vehicles in Gurgaon-27-08-2021


Gurgaon: To provide impetus to its ambitious e-vehicle zone project, MCG has decided to set up charging stations at its Sector 42 office, the community centres in Sector 27 and Sukhrali, and the Sector 29 fire station. The civic body on Thursday conducted a trial run of the electric charging station in Sector 42.


“The station at our Sector 42 office will facilitate the charging of three vehicles simultaneously and will have the capacity to charge 30 to 35 e-vehicles in 24 hours. We are also going to set up similar charging stations at the Sector 29 fire station and the community centres in Sukhrali and Sector 27,” said Sanjeev Singla, joint commissioner-3, MCG.

Moreover, MCG officials said they are also planning to set up battery-swapping stations for the e-rickshaws.

During the trial run, the MCG officials also apprised some 30 auto-rickshaw drivers of the advantages of switching from diesel to electric mode.

The auto drivers were told that the civic body would give them a subsidy of Rs 30,000 to Rs 35,000 for the same under the FAME India project. But for that, the owners will have to scrap their old diesel autos.

On August 16, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar launched 600 e-rickshaws and the city's first electric three-wheelers vehicle zone — Cyber City, Golf Course Road, MG Road, IFFCO Chowk, Huda City Centre, Galleria market and Vyapar Kendra road. The project, named Parivartan, will replace 12,000 diesel and petrol autos in a phased manner.

Officials said diesel and CNG autos would not be allowed in the zone, but private cars and buses could run as usual. A shuttle service will be available to and from various points in the electric vehicle zone.

Officials said the concessionaire would have to construct waiting areas at the e-rickshaw stands and set up charging stations too.

The civic body, on August 24, rolled back its decision to ban CNG and diesel autos with fitness certificates in the e-three wheeler zone, following a protest from the CNG auto drivers.

The Haryana Auto Association had raised objections to the decision to replace diesel autos with e-rickshaws, claiming it would only favour a few private companies.

MCG officials have already said that some 2,000 old diesel autos will be replaced in the first phase of the project for which they are raising awareness among the vehicle owners.

The concessionaire is given the task to plan, design, install, operate, maintain and establish parking and charging stations at different locations.

There are plans to make a waiting area at the e-vehicle stands in the zone and also establish parking facilities for the e-rickshaws.
