In order to promote the use of electric cars, Indian Railways will install charging stations at the parking of New Delhi railway and Nizamuddin station. Necessary preparations for the installation of such systems are already underway. According to the proposed plan, Railway would install fast charging DC points at a dedicated parking lot at these two stations.
Each system would be able to charge 10 cars simultaneously. These charging stations would be set up by BSES – Rajdhani Power Ltd. The scope of work includes funding, procurement and construction, operation and maintenance of the electric charging station infrastructure. It will cost about Rs.15 lakhs to provide charging infrastructure at each station parking lot – at Rs 3 lakh per charging point.
