The verification process begins with verification at the dealer level, followed by registration and departmental verification. The final verification is carried out by the Transport Inspector.

The banking partner will transfer the subsidy amount to their bank account within 3 working days after the verification process is completed.

As per the policy, two-wheeler electric vehicles will get Rs 5,000 per EV subsidy for the first two lakh purchases, not exceeding 15 percent of the ex-factory cost.

For electric four-wheelers, the subsidy will be Rs 1 lakh per EV for 25,000 earlier purchases, not exceeding 15 percent of the ex-factory cost.

For buyers purchasing EVs without batteries, the subsidy amount will be 50 percent of the total. This initiative is part of the Uttar Pradesh Electric Vehicle Manufacturing and Mobility Policy, 2022 which includes a purchase subsidy incentive scheme.
