Besides a few people, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Goa, sent suggestions to the government, which were shared during the webinar.

Another suggestion that is being adopted is that of the settlement of customer-related issues, which has been given a window of 90 days. This will be reduced to 30 days, after suggestions from citizens. For consumer benefit and rapid adoption of EVs, the government may even ask stakeholders to arrange free test drives with the objective to inform consumers about the technology and its advantages.

Embracing this policy will change the face of vehicular operations in Goa, as the state takes a successful step towards clean energy.

Besides public transport, private vehicle owners will also be able to bid goodbye to their fossil fuel-operated two- and four-wheelers, and adopt electric vehicles.

The Goa government intends to convert buses in the state to electric vehicles in a bid to cut down on carbon emissions. In addition to this, the draft policy also intends to convert 50% of Goa’s ferryboats to electric by 2025. Start-ups and investment in the field of electric mobility and associated sectors are likely to be involved, besides which service units and battery repair and maintenance stations are likely to come up.

The state hopes to create 10,000 jobs in the sector by 2025 as a result. More charging stations are likely to come up across the state based on the vehicle density of each area, as per a suggestion made at the webinar. The electric charger operator will be able to accept payments through multiple modes such as cash, card, mobile wallet and UPI.

Based on the suggestions offered at the webinar by the attendees, the policy will be forwarded to the finance department for approval, and further steps will be taken up for its implementation.
