Electric vehicles seem to be the future, and the state government and the Indian government are making the necessary changes to promote them. Given the high pollution levels and increasing awareness among people, looks like EVs or electric vehicles will take over the streets faster than assumed. The state government is in the process of expediting the process of setting up public charging stations, and those using EVs can charge their vehicles by shelling out Rs 12.06 per kWh as service charges.


As per Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation (TSREDCO), about 118 public vehicle charging stations are being installed across Hyderabad with the help of government incentives. These charging stations are coming up under the faster adoption and manufacturing of hybrid and electric vehicle (FAME) II schemes.


Apart from Hyderabad, 20 charging stations are being set up in Warangal and Karimnagar. Already, some private charging stations are operating in the state. The new 138 stations are expected to be functional by March 2021.


The Ministry of Power has issued revised guidelines for the charging infrastructure of EVs. Accordingly, the state government has fixed charges, and the service charges will be Rs 12.06 plus applicable GST. If any four-wheeler has to charge 25 units, it will cost Rs 300 for EVs, on the other hand, when it comes to petrol, one cannot even get three units of petrol for the same price.


Meanwhile, Rs 6 per kWh is charged in residential areas. The charges are double in public places as they require personnel for upkeep. Two-wheelers can run up to 150 km after a full charge, while four-wheelers require 30 to 40 units for a full charge.
