The Chief Minister was also detailed about the e-charging stations already established and those which were currently being set up in the state.

Himachal: Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu said that the state government would bring an effective policy to develop electric charging stations for e-vehicles in the state. While presiding over a high-level meeting on Sunday evening at Shimla, he said that the policy would focus on various aspects including accessibility, convenience and opening employment avenues. He said that private operators would also be roped in with 50 percent subsidy for setting up e-charging stations.

The Chief Minister was also detailed about the e-charging stations already established and those which were currently being set up in the state. He said that the state was being developed as a Model State for Electric Vehicles. With the objective of reducing carbon emissions, electric vehicles are being encouraged with the collaboration of private and public sectors.

Apart from this, six green corridors were being developed in the first phase, he said and added that the length of these corridors, comprising National and State Highways is 2137 kms.

Speaking on the land use for construction activities and developing infrastructure, he said that it should be made sure that the land was scientifically suitable for the construction works. Construction works should be started only after a scientific study of the land on the spot. In this process, the study of practical aspects is absolutely necessary, he added.
