In a bid to support green mobility, Indian Hotels Company Ltd has partnered with Tata Power to establish electric vehicle charging station.
This is the first such facility at any Tata Group hotel in the northeast, and the company plans to install charging points in other units too, IHCL Area Director Jayanta Das told reporters.
Pollution Control Board, Assam (PCBA) Chairman Arup Kumar Misra, while inaugurating the facility, said that more such charging stations are required to control the rising pollution level in the state capital.
“We want a clean and green environment. We also have to satisfy the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030,” he said.
The charging points have arrangements to plug in four vehicles at a time.
Owners of electric vehicles, including two-wheelers, need to book slots in an app, and payments can be made online, the company added.
