Cap on tariffs for public charging stations for EVs

The Ministry of Power has issued an amendment to the revised Guidelines and Standards for Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles (EVs) which were issued in October 2019. As per the amendment, the tariff shall not be more than the average cost of supply plus 15 per cent unless otherwise specified by the Tariff Policy. Last year in October 2018, the power ministry had removed any cap on the tariff for public charging stations. Further, amendments have been made to the definitions of different types of charging stations.
