Realizing the future potential of the EV segment, Karnataka Government has decided to set up 75 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Hubballi Dharwad at Government-owned locations under the PPP model.

  1. No roads in Hubli-Dharwad. They need to give electric shocks to our local politicians to make them work.

  2. Government has taken good decision and it’s great move.EV sales will boost in coming days. Govt has to proactively change the diesel buses to EV buses.
