As we know that BMTC (Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation) are launching 300 EV buses which will replace Volvo diesel buses over the next few months. For this BMTC has identified four depots to set up charging stations for promoting EVs.

The government are now promoting charging station in the share of the electric vehicle the state is finally setting up the infrastructure required they are also promoting to convert the existing auto-rickshaws into e-rickshaws. The transport department, along with the department of industries and commerce, is mulling a subsidy of up to Rs 1 lakh for new electric autos and 50,000 for converting existing ones to run on battery.

Bengaluru is home to around 10,000 electric vehicles, but Bescom has set up only four public charging stations till now. All of these are on government office premises: Bescom KR Circle corporate office; KERC office; Vidhana Soudha and Vikasa Soudha. Though the facility is free, the response from EV owners has been lukewarm. For this inconvenience by the month-end, Bescom’s 112 charging points will be operational. This will help electric vehicle owners access a public charging station in Bengaluru every 5km. The charging stations will come up at Indiranagar, Yelahanka, BTM Layout, Peenya, Old Airport Road, Mysuru Road and Banaswadi. BMTC terminals, Metro stations, BWSSB and BBMP offices will also have them. Officials said the stations will come up in four depots: Whitefield, Hebbal, KR Puram and HSR Layout. While BMTC, along with Bescom, will provide electricity from substations to these depots, selected firms will set up charging stations for promoting EVs infrastructure for these buses. Once fully charged, an e-bus could cover 200km. The 300 buses will be deployed mainly on airport routes and tech corridors of the city
