The Punjab government introduces the ‘Green Wheels’ initiative, offering interest-free electric bikes and rickshaws

The Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has introduced the ‘Green Wheels’ program, a bold initiative aimed at reshaping the commuting landscape of the province.

This innovative project seeks to provide 10,000 electric bikes and rickshaws to the public on favorable terms, completely interest-free.

During a media address, Chief Minister Naqvi elaborated on the key features of the ‘Green Wheels’ initiative. The program will grant 2,000 electric three-wheeler bikes to specific individuals, entirely free of interest.

Additionally, another 2,000 electric bikes have been designated for government employees, and a further 2,000 are reserved for women in both government and private sectors, all provided without interest.

A noteworthy aspect of this initiative is a significant shift in government procurement policies. Chief Minister Naqvi announced a prohibition on the acquisition of fuel motorcycles at the government level. Going forward, government departments will exclusively acquire electric bikes, aligning with the global trend towards sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation solutions.

Highlighting the provincial government’s commitment to addressing environmental concerns, Naqvi urged citizens to embrace the ‘Green Wheels’ opportunity. He underscored the collective effort needed to contribute to creating a greener and cleaner future for Punjab.
