Kolkata/IBNS; To ensure zero emission and reduce air pollution, the West Bengal State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (WBSEDCL) has introduced three electric vehicles (EVs) to be used as official transportation.

Chairman & Managing Director, Santanu Basu, IAS, flagged off the Tata Tigor Electric Vehicles recently in Kolkata from Vidyut Bhawan, the headquarters of the state run enterprise.

The enterprise in a release said that it hopes other state government bodies will also follow the example and bring about a change for the better in the ambient air quality and promote the 'Green City Mission' launched by the state government.

WBSEDCL has taken three e-vehicles on lease from Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL), a JV of four CPSUs for deploying them for their official transportation purposes.
