Ayodhya Development Authority and Tata Power team up to build EV charging infrastructure
Tata Power, a leading player in the electric vehicle charging infrastructure space, has partnered with the Ayodhya Development Authority to install EV charging stations in public parking lots throughout the city.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Gaurav Dayal, Divisional Commissioner of Ayodhya; Nitish Kumar, District Magistrate of Ayodhya; Vishal Singh, VC, Ayodhya Development Authority; and Virendra Goyal, Head-Business Development (EV Charging), Tata Power.
Tata Power proposes to install EV charging points at key public locations such as Parking Survya Kund, Guptar Ghat, Amaniganj MLCP in front of the Jalkal Department; Kaushesh Kunj MLCP parking near the Ayodhya railway station; Tedhi Bazar MLCP parking on the east and west sides of Ayodhya; and the Collectorate Office parking in Ayodhya.
These locations have been carefully selected to provide EV users with convenient and accessible charging facilities, ensuring a seamless charging experience throughout the city.
The government of Uttar Pradesh has taken significant steps to promote the use of electric vehicles (EVs) in the state. To encourage EV purchases, the government offers a three-year tax and registration fee exemption.
Furthermore, EVs manufactured in the state are exempt for five years, encouraging the growth of local EV manufacturing and supporting the state’s economy. These policies are intended to make electric vehicles more affordable and accessible in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Virendra Goyal said, “Our approach encompasses a comprehensive focus on infrastructure development, technological innovation, and strategic collaborations. Through our partnership with the Ayodhya Development Authority, we are fully committed to establishing a seamless and easily accessible charging ecosystem for electric vehicle users in Ayodhya. By leveraging our extensive experience and expertise in advanced technologies, we are dedicated to supporting the city’s sustainable transportation objectives and driving the transition towards a cleaner and more environmentally friendly future for the city and the nation.”
Tata Power has currently installed 110 public and semi-public charging stations across Uttar Pradesh. The company claims to have nearly 60% market share in India’s EV charging space, having installed over 40,000 home chargers, over 4,000 public and semi-public charging points, and 250 bus-charging stations.
