Shimla, November 14, 2023: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has asked the Transport Department to submit a status report on the setting up of e-charging stations in the state within 10 days.

The state government has proposed to construct 107 e-charging stations, of which 53 will be constructed at petrol pumps and 54 through the Transport Department.

The Chief Minister also reviewed the project of establishing six proposed green corridors in the state and said that the diesel buses of Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) would be replaced with e-buses in a phased manner.

The tender process for the purchase of 300 new e-buses will be initiated soon, he said.

The state government is also giving priority to the operation of e-vehicles for environmental conservation and e-taxis will be hired in government departments, he added.

To provide self-employment opportunities to the unemployed youth, e-taxis will be hired from them, which will be deployed in government departments. A website is also being developed for registration of e-taxi, which will be launched soon, he said.

The present state government is also soon going to launch the first phase of a start-up scheme worth Rs. 680 crore to provide self-employment to the youth, said Sh. Sukhu and added that the Labour Department is now also registering the employers so that they could get trained youth as per their requirements.
