MUMBAI (Metro Rail News): Central Railway, contributing to the Government’s endeavor to reduce carbon emissions, has set up 9 EV (Electric Vehicle) charging facilities at important stations in Mumbai Division.

Central Railway has provided EV charging facilities at 9 stations i.e Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Dadar, Byculla, Parel, Kurla, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, Bhandup, Kalyan, and Panvel.  EV charging facilities at these important Railway stations will boost e-mobility, as an important step towards environmental stability as it reduces carbon emission as well as improves the quality of life of people apart from facilitating low maintenance requirements. This public charging facility at the Railway stations is functional 24×7 and will also augment the charging infrastructure for EVs to operate smoothly, bringing great relief to people, as they can charge their EVs at key locations near Railway Stations. The provision of this EV charging facility through the Non-Fare Revenue Scheme also brings in additional income to Central Railway apart from promoting Green Initiatives.

With the large no. of vehicles o­n the road in Mumbai, these Electric Vehicle charging facilities at Railway stations will provide affordable, efficient, and reliable charging points thus encouraging more electric vehicles o­nto the road and helping to promote healthier air and a clean environment.

Provisions of EV charging points is another ‘Green initiative’ step amidst many key initiatives taken by Indian Railways like 100% electrification in coming years, reduction in energy consumption, and meeting energy demand through the creation of Renewable energy like Solar & Wind energy.
