In order to give a permanent solution to the problems of Electric Vehicle Owners, installation of a network of Charging Infrastructure across the country has been included in the latest electric vehicle guidelines. This installation will be done phase-wise.

According to the new Electric Vehicle Charging Guidelines, at least one charging station should be present in a grid of 3 Km X 3 Km in the cities and one charging station at every 25 Km on both sides of highways/roads.

"It has been envisaged that in the first phase all megacities with a population of 4 million-plus as per census 2011, all existing expressways connected to these megacities and important highways connected with each of these megacities may be taken up for coverage," an official said in a statement.

Big cities like state capitals, Union Territory headquarters may be covered in the second phase for distributed and demonstrative effect.

The Ministry of Power had issued the standards and guidelines for charging infrastructure for the electric vehicles in December 2018. There were several changes made in the guidelines after the Power Ministry receive suggestions from various stakeholders. Later, several suggestions were adopted and the revised guidelines were issued.

The revised guidelines have been issued by the Ministry of Power on October 1. The specifications regarding the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles have also been issued.

The guidelines also say that for long-range or heavy-duty EVs like buses or trucks fast-charging stations shall be installed at every 100 Kms, on each side of the highways or road.

Ministry of Power has nominated the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE), as the Central Nodal Agency.

A State Nodal Agency has also been appointed for different states in the guidelines. The roles of these Nodal Agencies have also been specified. These agencies will act as facilitators in the installation of Charging Infrastructure throughout the country.
