Manish Sisodia – Dy CM, Delhi:
Driven by the vision of CM Arvind Kejriwal to make Delhi the ‘ELectric Vehicle capital’, Delhi govt today became the 1st in the world, not just India, to mandate its entire hired car fleet to switch to electric WITHIN a deadline- 6 mths.
‘Switch Delhi’ begins at home
Over 2,000 cars will be impacted by this decision and will transition to EVs in next 6 months.
We hope this decision inspires cities and govts around India and the world to tackle the pollution and climate change problem with the seriousness and urgency it deserves.
