MSME representing body, Faridabad Industries Association (FIA) has asked for power tariff rate reduction from the Haryana government on the similar lines as it has been announced for domestic consumers in the state.
Speaking to KNN India, Executive director of FIA, Col S Kapoor said that MSME sector in the state is fighting a very tough battle due to high power tariff rate. He said that industrial tariff is highest in Haryana as compared to other neighboring states like Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Rajasthan.
