Chandigarh, September 24 – Haryana Deputy Chief Minister, Sh. Dushyant Chautala said that the State Government is striving to make Haryana a leading State in the direction of steel recycling so that the central Government’s goal of ‘Clean and Green India’ can be fulfilled.
The Deputy Chief Minister today attended the ‘Haryana Energy Transition Summit’ organized virtually by the ‘PhD Chambers of Commerce’ as the Chief Guest.
He said that at present Haryana is one of the few States promoting recycling in which work is being done on systematic-scraping of vehicles and recycling of steel from it. In Rohtak, a plant costing around Rs. 150 crore has already been commissioned while fruitful talks are on with some other big companies to create a strong scrap-recycling infrastructure in the State. He said that by the time the Government of India starts its Vehicle Scrapping Policy in the year 2023-24, the Haryana Government will prepare the supporting infrastructure of ‘Automatic Testing Centre’ and scrapping facilities in the State.
Sh. Dushyant Chautala informed that ‘HAREDA’ has been established by the State Government to promote new and renewable energy in the State, this will encourage green building designs for efficient use of energy in housing, commercial and industrial sectors. The State Government has prepared ‘Saral Haryana Solar Water Pump Scheme 2021’, which will also provide opportunities to the industries of Haryana to manufacture and sell solar pumps of capacity of 2 HP (surface and submersible) and 5 HP (submersible). Beneficiaries can avail subsidy under the ‘Pradhan Mantri Kusum Yojana’ ‘Solar Water-Pump Installation Scheme’ by paying only 10 percent of the total cost. He also informed that Haryana is one of the leading states where setting up of ‘Solar Rooftop Plants’ has been made mandatory for certain categories of buildings.
The Deputy Chief Minister informed that Delhi-Chandigarh Highway has become the first ‘Electric-Vehicle Friendly Highway’ in the country on which solar-based electric vehicle charging stations have been installed.
He urged all the industrialists that we should use low carbon materials in the industries. He informed that the main objective of the State Government is to focus on increasing the use of renewable energy sources and reducing the cost of production through conventional energy sources. Efforts are being made to ensure the availability of CNG/PNG to the industries in all the districts especially the districts adjacent to Delhi. Gradually industries will be encouraged to shift to cleaner modes of fuel.
He said that at present the companies which are making vehicles running on conventional fuel petrol, diesel etc. will also be given support and exemption to change their technology to non-conventional fuel vehicles. Haryana Government has drafted an Electric Vehicle Policy with an aim to check pollution caused by vehicular transport in the state. The objective of this policy is to make Haryana a global hub for development as well as manufacturer of electric vehicles. In this, facilities like capital subsidy, exemption on stamp duty, electricity subsidy, water incentive etc will be given to the manufacturers. He said that the Haryana government would also increase the proportion of electric vehicles in its fleet.
