The Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd has decided to start a new scheme under which consumers can pay dues in instalments. Now consumers living in urban areas, having electricity connections up to a load of 5 KW can pay their dues in 12 easy instalments. For rural consumers the dues can be paid in 24 instalments.
UP Energy Minister Shrikant Sharma said that registration for the new scheme will be launched on November 11 and will continue till December 31. The scheme will be only for LMV-1 or domestic consumers of urban areas up to 4 KW load and all consumers of rural areas.
“Electricity dues is a big problem in UP. That is why we have brought this scheme. Consumers would have to pay five per cent of the dues or a minimum Rs 1,500 as first instalment with their regular October bill,” the minister said.
However, only those consumers would be eligible for the scheme who continue to pay power bills regularly on time, Sharma added. Read More
