The Kejriwal government is working to provide relief to these people, and a comprehensive strategy has been put in place to do so. These vehicles will soon be able to be converted to electric trains. For this reason, the Delhi government would also supply discounted kits.
The AAP government has also made it possible to convert 10-year-old petrol and diesel trains to electric. The news comes as a welcome relief to owners of 10-year-old petrol and diesel trains in Delhi. The Delhi government has also ramped up efforts to bring relief to the city's tens of thousands of petrol and diesel car owners. For this reason, the Delhi government has begun the process of appointing manufacturers and suppliers of electric retrofit kits for use in such petrol and diesel trains. Thousands of train owners in Delhi would benefit enormously from this.
