The minister, along with department officials, also inspected an e-bus, a Delhi government official said. The government has fast-paced the procurement process for 500 e-buses. "The process for procurement of the 500 buses has been expedited. Daily meetings are being held to work out the economics of the purchase and available technology to choose the best available and cost-effective buses," the official said.



The decision to buy 500 e-buses was made in a meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The Delhi government has chalked out a "short-term plan" to procure 500 electric buses (e-buses). As per the one-year plan, 500 low-floor, air-conditioned e-buses would be procured.

The transporter minister also met officials of the Delhi Multi-Modal Transit System (DIMTS) on the matter. The government will buy the buses using the environment cess fund of about Rs 800 crore.
