EESL signs agreement with NOIDA authority to install EV charging units

Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has signed an agreement with the New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (Noida) to promote electric vehicles and install public EV charging stations and related infrastructure.

EESL will make an upfront investment on services pertaining to the agreement along with the operation and maintenance of public charging infrastructure. Noida authority will be responsible for the provision of space for the charging infrastructure. The initiative is estimated to save over 3.7 tonnes of CO2 emissions per e-car per year, an official statement said.

Noida CEO Ritu Maheshwari said, “Developing a sustainable landscape with strong supporting EV infrastructure is the key to cultivating consumer confidence in electric vehicles. This will significantly enhance consumer convenience as well. With increasing penetration of EVs, the local pollutants emission levels are also expected to reduce, leading to cleaner air and several public health benefits.”

Noida authority has been sanctioned 162 Public EV Charging Stations under the FAME India Scheme Phase-II of Department of Heavy Industry (DHI). EESL is the selected organisation for deployment of public charging stations in Noida City. So far, EESL has installed 20 EV chargers, 13 are commissioned and 7 are under commissioning.

EESL executive director Amit Kaushik said, “Electric Vehicles (EVs) are at the forefront of the world’s agenda to move towards a sustainable future and EESL is proud to be progressively leading initiatives to promote EV adoption in India under its national e-mobility programme. We are pleased to partner with Noida authority to co-create synergies to set up Public EV Charging Infrastructure in Noida.”

Over 1,200 booked over protest in Uttar Pradesh’s Noida

An FIR was lodged on Tuesday against 1,200 to 1,500 protestors, including women, who have been charged with murder attempt, rioting, wrongful confinement, destruction of public property, among others, during an ongoing protest outside Noida Authority office here, officials said. Around “1,200 to 1,500” accused people have been booked in the case and the FIR names 31 inpiduals that includes Bhartiya Kisan Parishad leader Sukhvir Khaleefa alias Sukhvir Pahalwan.

Hundreds of people from several villages in Noida have been protesting for over 40 days against the local authority with various demands, including hiked compensation for their land acquired by the government in the past.

The protest is not part of the ongoing anti-farm law stir against the Centre on Delhi’s borders since November last year.

According to police officials, the protestors led by farmer leader Khaleefa had locked the main gate of Noida Authority office in Sector 6 on Monday and also attacked police personnel who were deployed at the site.

“The protestors started a march from the Baraat Ghar in Harola towards the Noida Authority office in the afternoon, raising slogans and hurling abuses against the officials. Their march also disrupted traffic movement on the busy road,” a police official on law and order duty claimed.

“Those leading the march paid no heed to police’s announcements and efforts to pacify them and instructed the protestors to break past the barricades that were set up to control the crowd,” the official from the local Sector 20 police station said.

Several policemen were injured in the clash that ensued and later the protestors locked up the main gate of Noida Authority office, disturbing government work also, according to the official.

The first information report (FIR) was lodged around 2 am on Tuesday at the Sector 20 police station in connection with the episode and on basis of a complaint by the police personnel.

The accused have been booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 342 (wrongful confinement), 341 (wrongful restraint), 332 (causing hurt to public servant in discharge of their duty), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 427 (mischief), 504 (intentional insult) and 147 (rioting), according to officials.

They have also been charged with IPC Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 269 (unlawfully or negligently spreading infection of any disease dangerous to life), 270 (malignant act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life).

Sections under the Epidemic Diseases Act, Criminal Law Amendment Act, and the Prevention of Damage to Public Property Act have also been invoked in the case, the officials said.
