The decision was taken during the weekly cabinet meeting held on Thursday.
Earlier in October 2023, Assam Government inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Tata Power EV Charging Solutions Limited (TPEVCSL), a subsidiary of the Tata Power Group, with a primary objective of enhancing the electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem in the region.
Under this collaboration, Guwahati is set to witness the introduction of a convenient and robust EV charging infrastructure. Tata Power will kickstart this initiative by installing a network of 10 advanced EV chargers at strategic locations throughout the city, as part of a pilot project. Key installations will be strategically placed in high-traffic areas such as Dispur.
