Keeping in view the policy thrust of the Government that by 2030, 30% of the total vehicle fleet in the country will be electrical for the reason of its being environmental friendly, cost effective and substitute for fossil fuels, Ministries/Departments are encouraged to switch over to electrical mobility from petrol and diesel cars in respect of vehicles taken on lease/hire for official purpose. 

2. Accordingly, all the Ministries/Departments may aim at replacing the petrol and diesel cars hired by Ministries/Departments in their Secretariats and attached offices (located in Delhi) through contractors by electric cars for mobility in Delhi. In cases where existing contracts for hiring of petrol/diesel vehicles have come to an end, Ministries/Departments may consider fresh contract for hiring electric vehicles. 

3. To facilitate Ministries/Departments a framework of the draft agreement which the Ministries/Department may adopt for entering into contract for lease/hiring of electric vehicles is annexed. Ministrics/Dcpartments are at liberty to amend the conditions of the draft agreement as per the type of lease/hiring (Wet or Dry) entered into with the service provider.
