The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) identifies 106 locations in the city for establishing EV charging stations. Private agencies will come in to set up electric vehicle charging stations after signing the deal. The agencies will get the spaces on lease for 15-20 years.

“The expression of interest (EoI) will be floated by the end of this month. The state government has already introduced EV policy to boost the use of electric vehicles in the state,” the official said.

The NMC is already working on initiatives to encourage residents of the city to buy electric vehicles instead of diesel or petrol-based vehicles. NMC also brought a policy for buying CNG vehicles and EVs for its departments in the future.

Recently, The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) ordered all the new residential buildings which have at least 25 flats to set up EV charging stations. For additional 25 flats, there must be two EV charging stations which mean if a building has 50 flats or more, it must have two EV charging stations.

In July 2021, NMC took charge of its city bus services from Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC). Then NMC appointed 2 private agencies for procurement, operation, and maintenance of the city buses. Both the agencies have together procured around 250 buses.
