Govt to allow digital payments for charging EVs
The government will allow electric car users to pay for charging of their electric vehicles through digital means, including BHIM app and Bharat QR code. The government has accepted suggestions of a panel — Committee for Standardisation of the Protocol for Charging Infrastructure — in this regard. In its report, the committee also mooted uniform standards for EV charging stations in India, which will enable electric vehicles of all models by different manufacturers to be charged at any station."The customers need to be billed for the charging and payment needs to be made. There are multiple options, including debiting the user's account based on VIN (vehicle identification number). Direct debiting the funds to user's equipment based on VIN will be adopted.
