Owing to poor footfalls in the second wave of the pandemic, of the 30 EVs currently with KTC, only 10 are operational.

Panaji: The Kadamba Transport Corporation Limited (KTC) plans to add more electric vehicles (EVs) to its fleet of buses running on this clean energy source. While the charging station at Margao is currently operational to recharge the existing 30 buses, keeping in mind the additional EVs that are expected to arrive soon, KTC has moved a proposal to the electricity department to waive the deposit they are supposed to pay for the installation of new charging stations.

“This way, wherever we are supposed to set up a charging station, we will not have to pay the deposit, which is a huge amount,” KTC managing director Derek Pereira Neto said.
