Karnataka is planning to make some amendments in its Building Bye-Laws 2017 making it mandatory for buildings to have a dedicated space for EVs.

The proposal suggests that buildings, residential or commercial, will have to reserve at least 20% parking space for facilities related to EV charging infrastructure. According to an official, the draft for the proposal has already been forwarded to the urban development department for approvals.

This move comes right after central govt’s Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs made necessary changes in the national bye-laws and asked states to make provision of charging facilities in parking space to promote faster EV adoption.
