Haryana to design a policy for the manufacture of electric vehicles: Minister

The Haryana government will turn into a battery-powered policy for the manufacture of electric vehicles and internal combustion engines in the state, Deputy State Minister Dushyant Chautala told PTI.

To this end, the state government will invite suggestions after consultation with vehicle manufacturers and industry experts. Chautala, who also holds the position of Department of Industry and Trade, gave the necessary guidance on the formulation of policies, saying that the policy will promote green electric vehicles instead of those that run on fossil fuels and cause pollution.

In addition to purchasing new electric vehicles, the policy will focus on replacing existing vehicles with electric vehicles at the end of their time. The work will end on a phase-packed continent.
