Chandigarh to get 40 e-buses

E-bus

The Chandigarh administration recently floated a tender for 40 electric buses and bus charging stations for the city.  
 
The plan to get buses was first floated in 2016. The UT administration had planned to buy 20 electric buses to fight air pollution. The UT Administrator, Mr VP Singh Badnore, had approved the project in November 2016. Soon after, the Chandigarh Transport Undertaking (CTU) had tried to put the project in motion. Meanwhile, since the budgetary estimate for the project was Rs 32 crore, the UT administration had sought financial support from the Centre.
 
The cost of each electric bus is between Rs 1.25 crore and Rs 1.40 crore, which were planned to be bought under a Central Government scheme, in which 60 per cent of the cost was to be borne by the Union Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises. Accordingly, the UT administration had written to the ministry, but the latter had refused to fund the project.
 
In August 2017, the UT administration had even test driven buses from various companies. During the trial, weight of around 1,750 kg was put in the buses. An 11-member team was constituted for inspection and compiling a report. Based on the report of the team, the authorities took the decision to purchase battery-operated buses.
