We have submitted a proposal to carry out the capex and maintain the infrastructure for 10 years. There will be some revenue sharing with the landowner,” he said.

A clear guideline for electricity cost of the EV charging stations has not been worked out as yet. However, talks are already on in this regard, officials said.
