Okaya Power has reportedly secured a contract from Rajasthan Electronics and Instruments (REIL) to deploy 4,244 multi-standard electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across India.

Okaya Power Group is said to be one of India’s key manufacturers and suppliers of EV charging stations, lithium-ion batteries and lead-acid batteries.

News agency Press Trust of India (PTI) reported that Okaya will supply, install, and commission more than 4,244 multi-standard EV charging stations with CCS, CHAdeMO, Type-2, and Bharat specification protocol in the country.

The contract is said to have been funded by the Department of Heavy Industries (DHI), Ministry of Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises.

In a statement, Okaya Power said that this is the second contract it has secured from REIL in a year.

Last year, REIL awarded a contract to Okaya to supply, install, and commission more than 200 multi-standard EV chargers across all major cities and highways.

Under the contract, Okaya was required to install EV charging stations on the Delhi-Jaipur-Agra and Mumbai-Pune highways.

Okaya claimed that its EV chargers are compatible with all internationally accepted standards.

In the statement, Okaya Power director Anshul Gupta said: “We are delighted to be awarded with the DHI-funded contract. Okaya is continuously engaged in enhancing the EV charging infrastructure in the country and has already established its credentials as a trusted partner with several reputed organisations.”
