Delhi government will provide a subsidy of ₹5,500 each for first 10,000 buyers of e-cycles in the city, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot said on Thursday.

The first 1,000 buyers of passenger e-cycles will also be given an additional subsidy of ₹2,000, he added.

The government will also give subsidy on purchase of heavy duty cargo e-cycles and e-carts for commercial uses, he said. The subsidy on cargo e-cycles will be ₹15,000 each for first 5,000 buyers.

The subsidy was earlier provided to individual buyers of e-carts but now a company or corporate house buying these vehicles will also be provided a subsidy of ₹30,000, he said.

The residents of Delhi only will be eligible for the subsidy scheme, Mr. Gahlot said.

The Minister said that presently 45,900 e-vehicles are plying on the city roads, out of which 36% are two wheelers. The percentage of e-vehicles in total registered vehicles in Delhi has crossed 12% mark, he added.
