Delhi: DSEU to train 100 EV mechanics every year as part of ‘Green Jobs’ creation goal – Times of India

The Delhi government will soon provide a comprehensive training program for electric vehicle mechanics as part of creating ‘Green Jobs’ in the capital and with the aim of becoming India’s training hub for EV workforce. It has been reported that Delhi requires up to 500 mechanics every year and a lack of skilled EV mechanics has been identified. As EV popularity increases, it is important to have highly skilled technicians on board and address the demand for them.
