The 3 per cent hike in power tariff (for all categories) will not impact 20.55 lakh domestic consumers as the government has made a provision of Rs 475-crore rollback subsidy for this category.
The Himachal Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (HPERC) on Saturday issued the hiked power tariff for 2018-19, which will be effective from April 1, 2018, for 24.44 lakh total consumers of all categories.
The power tariff for domestic consumers has been enhanced from Rs 2.85 to Rs 3.30 per unit, but with the state government making a provision of Rs 475-crore rollback subsidy, the power charges will remain the same for the domestic consumers.
There will be a nominal increase in power charges for other categories like commercial, non-domestic, non-consumer and industry ranging from 5 paisa to 15 paisa per unit. Read More
