Announced by Nitin Gadkari during the “Go Electric” campaign, this hydrogen fuel bus service from Delhi to Jaipur will be used for intercity commute.
Giving a green flag to environment-friendly travel, National Thermal Power Corporation Limited (NTPC) has planned to launch a premium hydrogen fuel bus service on the Delhi-Jaipur route.
”We are planning to start a premium hydrogen fuel bus service from Delhi to Jaipur and gradually we will also try experimenting with running electric buses on the same route”, said Power Minister RK Singh on the launch of the ‘Go Electric’ campaign on Friday.
The announcement has been made, but we are still waiting for a specific timeline regarding when the service would be started. Currently, in order to check the viability of such fuel cell buses, a study is going on. It should be noted that such fuel buses had been tested earlier also in Mumbai. But for an intercity commute, it is happening for the very first time.
The Indian government is stepping towards green mobility with a few more things lined up. These projects will be helpful in reducing the dependence of the country on traditional crude oil, and fuels. According to the announcement made by Nitin Gadkari, 40,000 battery-powered buses will be used in Maharashtra for an intracity commute. During the same event, he also said, “I’ll be launching an electric tractor in the next 15 days.”
