DPCC subsidy means the subsidies introduced by the Delhi Pollution Control Committee to the users of e-fuels. It ranges from transport (e-rickshaws or other vehicles) to industries. This was to reduce the pollution in Delhi NCR. and to motivate other industries that are polluting in nature to shift the procedure of their production and reach for sustainable development. This is one of the many objectives of DPCC that they perform.
As we all know that the pollution level in Delhi is growing day by day, there have been multiple cases of DPCC penalty to the industries if they’re operating without consent or their pollution emissions exceed the standards. If your industry is operating without a license, we’d recommend that you should apply for DPCC license now.
In this blog, we’ll discuss a few of the many subsidy cases of the same.
DPCC subsidy Cases
The incentive to eateries using eco-friendly fuels
“The cabinet approved the Environment Department proposal for the grant of subsidy to restaurants, eating houses, banquet halls, hotels for replacing/conversion of their coal-based tandoors with electricity or gas-based tandoors,” a Government statement said.
As per the proposal, there would be a grant of subsidy of the cost or maximum subsidy of Rs.5,000 per tandoor (whichever is less). This subsidy was initiated from 1st April 2018.
DPCC implemented and monitored the subsidy scheme. Including this, it has also finalized the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP), application form and format of inspection/verification report for processing the case of grant of subsidy.
Industries switching fuels attracting subsidies
This subsidy was announced to industries that have switched to PNG (Piped Natural Gas) instead of other polluting fuels. There was an approval of Rs.50,000 to small industries and Rs.1,00,000 to large industries to be provided.
“The scheme will also be extended to those units which have taken their connections during 2017-2018. The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) will be authorized to issue cheques/DD in favor of Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL) for the units which switch over to PNG as per the confirmation list provided by IGL. IGL shall transfer the incentive amount in the PNG account of the industrial unit with IGL,” the statement said.
In addition to this, an advisor to the CM said “The DPCC has also been asked to finalize the standard operating procedure (SOP), application form and format of inspection and verification report for processing the cases of subsidy. Approvals for payments of both schemes will be met by the Air Ambience Fund maintained by DPCC,”.
Subsidy to e-rickshaws
On July 15th, 2017, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal released a subsidy of Rs.30,000 each to 6,000 e-rickshaws.
He commented that” pollution is among the biggest problem faced by the residents of Delhi and E-Rickshaws provide a solution to air pollution and last-mile connectivity.”
The total subsidy amounted to Rs.15 crores (verified by Transport Department). This amount was transferred directly to the recipient’s bank account.
In the year 2015, the Delhi government initiated a subsidy of Rs.15,000 to newly purchased e-rickshaws which were authorized and registered by the Transport Department. And on 1st April 2016, this amount was changed to Rs.30,000.
Subsidy to the general public
There is a 15% subsidy for all those customers who involved in purchasing Hero electric bike. This was initiated by DPCC and all you need to do is to submit required documents.
The amount would be transferred to the buyer’s account after the vehicle is purchased. This scheme is applicable to Delhi customers only and not from any other state.
In addition to this, there will be zero Value Added Tax (VAT) and a 50% reduction in Road Tax. As per the statistics, a total of 45,000 customers have benefitted from this scheme. The Electronic Vehicle they purchased was found 60% cheaper to run, 70% cheaper to upkeep and 90% less polluting as compared to petrol scooters.
This vehicle was tested completely environment-friendly as it produces zero tailpipe emissions. Anyone from the age group of 16-60 can drive this vehicle at a safe speed, making it reach wider audiences.
