HAREDA is also actively working for the promotion and adoption of EV charging stations and EVs in Haryana and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Convergence Energy Services Ltd (CESL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of EESL for the joint partnership to deploy EV charging infrastructure across the state.

Inaugurating the EV charging station, Kapoor said: “This one-of-its-kind public charging station gives EV owners the freedom to choose their preferred EV, based on their respective mobility needs. With charging infrastructure that can address local needs, Haryana has the potential to greatly accelerate EV adoption and reduce the dependence on fossil fuels, thereby reducing the vehicular emissions and decreasing India’s import of petrol-based fuels.”
