Chandigarh, July 31

Giving relief to power consumers of the state, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today announced reduction in tariff by 37 paise per unit.

Sharing more details in this regard, an official spokesperson said the discoms had achieved a substantial reduction in the average power purchase cost of about 46 paise per unit during 2020-21 over the previous year due to better planning and scheduling. This has also been reflected in fuel surcharge adjustment (FSA) calculations done by the Haryana Electricity Regulatory Commission (HERC).

To pass the benefit of the reduction of cost to consumers, particularly during the Covid times, the state government decided to waive 37 paise FSA being charged from consumers.

With this, electricity consumers will get relief of about Rs 100 crore per month, he added.

The FSA burden in respect of agricultural consumers is already being borne by the state government.
