Power Tariffs Set To Rise By 20 Per Cent In Uttar Pradesh

The UP Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) has recommended a 20% increase in power tariff across slabs and also suggested a hike in the fixed charge from Rs 90 per KW to Rs 110.

If implemented, this will lead to a steep increase in power bills — a monthly bill of, say, Rs 3,000 will rise to around Rs 4,000. In the tariff proposal submitted to UP Electricity Regulatory Commission (UPERC), UPPCL has recommended the highest increase of 26% in the lowest slab of 0-150 units, raising it from Rs 4.90 per unit to Rs 6.20.

The tariff for the 151-300 units slab is proposed to be hiked from Rs 5.40 to Rs 6.50 per unit. Similarly, urban households consuming 301 to 500 units per month will have to shell out Rs 7 per unit instead of Rs 6.20, and those with consumption higher than 500 units will have to pay Rs 7.50 per unit. Read more
