New Delhi, July 11

In taking a big leap towards modernising the city’s public transport, the Delhi government today gave “in-principle” approval for procurement of 1,000 low-floor electric buses that will hit the city roads from June-July next year. Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said that nod to Transport department’s proposal for e-buses was given in a meeting of Delhi cabinet chaired by the CM Arvind Kejriwal. “Cabinet approves hiring of consultant to run 1000 electric buses in Delhi,” Kejriwal tweeted.

The government has directed DIMTS to submit its report on the proposal within three months, Sisodia said. — TNS
