Electric Bikes to Employees: According to provincial Transport and Livestock Minister Ibrahim Hasan Murad, the caretaker government in Punjab is planning to implement an e-bike program to combat the dangerously high levels of pollution.
This plan aims to provide the government with the ability to lease electric bikes to its employees. E-bikes have the potential to lessen reliance on pricey fuel and support urban environmental preservation, as noted by Murad.
Murad expressed the importance of an electric vehicle policy and noted that Pakistan could be able to gain a significant market share in the world for EVs if incentives were provided for the production of electric vehicles.
He characterized e-bikes as an affordable and greener alternative to traditional modes of transportation.
The minister also outlined current initiatives aimed at reducing the threat posed by cars that emit smoke, demonstrating the government’s dedication to protecting the environment.
Ibrahim Hasan Murad also revealed that the enforcement action against automobiles that contribute to pollution in the environment will continue into the following month. It’s important to remember that Punjab’s interim chief minister had previously announced a student-only subsidy program for 10,000 electric bikes.
