Shri Rai said, "The war against pollution has already been started. On October 26 this campaign will be started at all the 70 assembly constituencies of Delhi. The Delhi government has also decided to launch this campaign at all the 272 wards of MCD on November 2. On the other hand, the Delhi pollution control committee is closely monitoring the 13 hotspots of Delhi to reduce the pollution levels."

The decomposer produced by Pusa Research Institute which can turn straw and stubble into manure for further use has been produced at a large scale and is being sprayed in various parts of the city to cease pollution caused by stubble burning and at the same time providing an effective alternative to the same. I am very happy that the people of Delhi are actively participating in this campaign. I want to request every citizen to join the campaign at their respective assembly constituency on October 26 and November 2."

Shri Gahlot said that the transport department has already approved over 100 EV models which will be eligible for this subsidy which and till now 36 manufactures have registered and 98 dealers have joined with us in this mission.
Shri Gahlot said, "One of the key actions Hon’ble CM had announced was the implementation of Delhi’s EV policy. Delhi EV Policy has been welcomed by all stakeholders and is considered as a model policy globally. It is our attempt that everything under the policy is implemented in the best way possible. Earlier this month, on October 10, 2020, it was decided that we implement the policy regarding exemption of road tax and on October 15, 2020, we implemented the exemption of registration."
He said, "Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of another major promise under Delhi’s EV policy – the portal for seamless disbursement of all the demand incentives to the vehicle buyers at ev.delhi.gov.in. The whole process has been designed keeping in mind consumer and public. So that they can have hassle-free access."
Shri Gahlot said, “Today, we are launching the portal which will be instrumental in disbursing both these incentives in a quick, efficient and transparent manner. Under the purchase incentive being offered as part of the Delhi EV Policy, the Transport department has already approved over 100 EV models which will be eligible for this subsidy."

Shri Gahlot said, "We hope this website will be a huge help for buyers to learn about all EV models and use this information in arriving at their buying decision. We have put in place the most efficient process possible for buyers to get these incentives."
*It involves just 3 steps:*
1.Buyer goes to an EV dealer of his/her liking to buy an EV.
2.Buyer buys the EV and gives all the details necessary to get the incentive to the dealer only (e.g. sales invoice, Aadhar, a copy of cancelled cheque) – no need to fill out any form separately in any govt office
3.Each EV dealer has been provided with a dedicated login to the site ev.delhi.gov.in wherein they can file the claims for demand incentives. The entire approval and disbursement process is online, paperless and will be completed within 3 days. MLOs will be in charge of approving the claim applications.
He said, "We have ensured that the buyer is well-informed about the progress and status of her/his claim application – since they would be getting information through regular SMS updates. The transport department too will have a dashboard through which we will be able to track how many applications have been received, how many are pending for approval, at the level of the individual office. Realtime tracking shall be facilitated."
*The website ev.delhi.gov.in will also host useful information such as*
1) List of EV dealers across the city
