NITI Aayog Vice Chairman, Dr. Rajiv Kumar, has released a proposal to develop electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Delhi. The proposal was drafted by AC2SG in collaboration with NITI Aayog.

The proposal for the quick pilot could be used to provide a structure for EV infrastructure rol lout in the Gurgaon-IGI-South Delhi-Noida corridor. This planning is expected to make the actual roll out easier and faster and also save cost on the deployment.

The planning process is based on a five-step process;

1) project kickoff

2) formation of "long list" of locations

3) streamlining and timing

4) documentation

5) wrap-up

This proposal for developing the pilot includes 55 locations with 135 charging stations of which 46 are DC quick charging stations and 89 are slower AC charging stations. This deployment would require co-operation with state governments, selected government authorities and companies as well as some private enterprises (e.g. DIAL at IGI, DLF Mall).

The plan includes a deployment timeline with first installations in November 2017.
