In a big push for green mobility, Union Power Minister R K Singh has urged the Union Ministers and Chief Ministers of all the states to utilise electric vehicles for all the official purposes to set an example for the general public and to promote adoption of EVs.
Singh has written to all the Union Ministers including the Ministers of States (Independent Charge) and CMs of all the states and UTs to join the Centre's initiative on transformative mobility, the Power Ministry said in a statement on Friday (27 August).
He has urged them to advice their respective ministries and departments to convert their fleet of official vehicles from present Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles to EVs for all official purposes.
According to the Power Ministry, such an action is expected to set an example for the general public and encourage them to switch over to E-Mobility.
The initiative is part of ongoing GO ELECTRIC CAMPAIGN launched by Centre to promote EVs to meet multiple objectives including attaining goal of reduction in emission, energy security, energy efficiency etc.
