Ltd has decided to set-up the (EV) Charging Infrastructure facility through Nextgen Kendra Outlets.

has 3,504 Nextgen Vakrangee Kendra's spread across 19 states, 366 districts and 2,186 postal codes. More than 68 per cent outlets are from Tier 5 and tier 6 cities. Their planned target is to reach at least 75,000 by FY2021-22 and 3,00,000 outlets by FY2024-25.

Vakrangee plans to leverage this deep presence by being an enabler for the EV charging facility through its network of Retail outlets called as Vakrangee kendras. They continue to focus on expanding the bouquet of services available at their exclusive Nextgen Vakrangee Kendras.

For all operators who want to setup services in India, it will make sense for them to leverage Vakrangee's charging infrastructure rather than building one of their own. Vakrangee is also building a large charging footprint on a Pan India basis through their network of Nextgen Vakrangee Kendra Outlets.

Commenting on this, Mr. Dinesh Nandwana, Executive Chairman said that, "We believe that the space is a huge growth opportunity for the coming years and we want to be future ready by developing a Pan India footprint of EV charging infrastructure. We would be an enabler by providing the distribution platform for the EV charging facility through our partnership with the EV service providers."

The government expects 25 per cent of the total vehicles on roads will be electric vehicles by 2030, necessitating erecting robust electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the country, according to the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry. As per the guidelines, there should be at least one station at every 25 Km on each side of the highway/roads.
