We believe that this partnership will not only help in strengthening our plan of rolling out 5000 electric cabs within the next 2 years but also give a huge boost to the overall EV environment in India."

According to Praveer Sinha CEO and MD, Tata Power, “EV charging is the future to ensure a cleaner tomorrow and we are happy to see that partners like Prakriti E-Mobility team share our vision.” Tata Power CFO and president, new businesses- Ramesh Subramanyam added that “We believe EV fleets have a huge role to play in providing greener, cleaner and healthier mobility solutions for our cities. Such partnerships would be key in our journey to be a one-stop integrated charging service provider to all forms of transport and all categories of user.”
