The Goa electricity department will reward domestic consumers with a 1% rebate for non-cash payment of power bills from August 1. “The rebate will be reflected in the next bill not the same bill,” said power minister Nilesh Cabral.
“The consumer will have to pay the entire bill. The rebate will be credited in the next bill.” He was speaking after inaugurating the department’s first POS machine in Panaji that will allow consumers to make payments via debit and credit cards.
