New Delhi, Jan 14 (PTI) Officials of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) officials will soon bid goodbye to their vintage ambassadors and commute to work in electric sedans.
The civic body will sign a memorandum of understanding with the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) under the Power Ministry for the project.
"The officials travelling by ambassadors will soon be given e-sedans for commuting to work.
"In the first phase, 80 electrically-run sedans will be procured by the ministry. The e-sedans will cost around Rs 10 lakh each, which the civic body will have to purchase from the company under the ministry at a subsidised rate," a senior NDMC official said.
