“The company aims to take this number to around 700 by next year,” said Praveer Sinha, chief executive officer and managing director at Tata Power

The government’s decision to lower the GST rate on EVs to 5 percent from 12 percent is expected to make Electric Cars affordable for consumers.

It also plans to set up charging stations at outlets of Tata Group-owned companies, such as Croma, Westside, Titan and Taj hotels, among others.
