With the EV market steadily growing, BESCOM has developed EV Mitra, a mobile app to locate charging stations in the city.
Story so far: Normally, an EV user has to book a slot at a charging station to fill up their “gas tanks”. Now, the EV Mitra gives you all the information you need about your nearest charging station for the smoothest experience.
- Earlier this year, BESCOM had announced the EV Jagruthi Web portal to provide specific information about the benefits granted to an EV user. This was a joint initiative of the NITI Aayog and the UK.
Stating specifics: BESCOM has already started running 136 EV charging stations in the city, with another 152 being set up. EV Mitra is just a user-friendly way to navigate these stations, book your slot, figure out the charges in different stations, etc.
