In order to reduce air pollution, the Haryana government has started increasing the manufacture and sale of electric vehicles. On the instructions of Chief Minister Manohar Lal, it has been decided to give several exemptions to electric vehicle manufacturers to set up their industries and to the already established industries for manufacturing electric vehicles. The objective behind this is to attract more and more manufacturers to set up industries in Haryana.
Industries providing basic facilities for making electric vehicles, battery of vehicles, equipment and charging stations will be given special benefits under the Haryana Electric Vehicle Policy-2022. The government is fully hopeful of selling electric powered electric vehicles in the state. Chief Minister Manohar Lal said that the pace of development is increasing in Haryana.
The proof of this is that the number of vehicles in the state has increased rapidly in the last eight years. Vehicles that run on fossil fuels are a major source of environmental pollution and are posing serious health hazards. Hence it becomes imperative to implement alternative clean and environment friendly technologies.
