New Delhi, September 27

The Delhi Government’s ambitious ‘mohalla’ bus scheme is expected to be rolled out within the next few months with the DTC likely to sign a contract for procuring electric buses this week, an official said on Wednesday.

The mohalla bus service, announced in the 2023-24 Delhi Budget, aims to deploy shorter 9m electric buses to boost last-mile connectivity in areas with roads that have less width or are crowded.

“We are likely to sign a contract with e-bus manufacturers this week or early next week for procurement of buses. The delivery of buses will take between three to five months,” the official said.
