Prakriti E-Mobility has signed an agreement with India’s leading integrated power utility company, Tata Power, to provide state-of-the-art charging infrastructure to support Prakriti’s EV Taxi fleet in Delhi-NCR.

The first phase of five chargers to be installed at Jasola, is a part of road map of up to 50 charging installations, to be installed near the Delhi Airport, Gurgaon and North Delhi, progressively in line with the increase in Prakriti’s fleet of ‘EVERA’ Cabs.
