The government has an initiative of setting up 4,00,000 charging stations by 2026 to meet the requirement for two million Electric Vehicles (EV).

Maxson Lewis, MD & Co-founder of Magenta Group said, “Installing EV chargers at Mumbai Railway Stations is a dream come true for me at a personal level. The adoption of electric Vehicles cannot be said to have taken off, if the common man’s concern of EV charging is not addressed; and what better than making EV charging available at the most synonymous locations for Mumbai’s common man – railway stations.”

Subhash Desai, Hon. Minister of Industry and Mining said, “We are glad to see Magenta with Central Railways pushing ‘green initiatives’ and setting up EV charging stations addressing the lack of the charging infrastructure for EVs to operate smoothly. This initiative will bring relief to people who can charge their EVs at key locations near Railway stations as well.”
