Rajasthan's government has established the Rajasthan Electric Vehicle Policy (REVP) to encourage the use of electric vehicles in the state. The government has authorized an extra budget allocation of Rs 40 crore for the refund of the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) on the purchase of such cars.

According to an official release, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has authorized this policy, and its execution would minimize pollution generated by diesel and gasoline cars in the state.
