Niti Aayog recommends railways to have at least 20% of parking capacity in the office complexes or railway stations for establishing EV charging stations. It also suggested installing a minimum of 1 EV charging pointer battery charging and swapping stations at the railway colony and targeted manned level crossing.

All the proposals are part of initiatives taken by the government of India to for promoting the use of electric vehicles, set up charging infrastructure, and manufacture vehicles domestically.

“Railway stations are landmark locations and they play a unique role in the entire transport sector which make them strategic locations for providing public charging solutions for EVs. They serve as important multi-modal transit nodes and thus, attract high volumes of traffic from various commuters, taxis, freight forwarders, etc. Plus, suburban railway stations serve a large number of daily commuters and act as pick-up and drop points for last-mile connectivity. So, there will be charging demand from private as well as paratransit vehicles,” an officer said.

Railways can begin with recently redeveloped 123 railway stations and gradually all the suburban railway stations can be covered. At the major railway stations, building EV charging infrastructure is important and payment tools like Fastag or UPI can be used.
