Concessions to be given in electricity bills

The Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that owing to the lockdown, the business and industries of our businessmen were closed for the last 2 months. On one hand, the sources of income decreased, but on the other the fixed expenses remained the same. Among these, the biggest concern in the minds of the people was about the fixed charges of electricity. The government has taken a big step to lessen this big problem.

  • The government has decided to postpone the recovery of fixed charges of all non-domestic, non-industrial, low tension and high tension industrial consumers such as shops, showrooms, hospitals, restaurants, marriage gardens, parlours, MSMEs and large industries from the bills of April till June 2020.

  • This amount can be deposited in 6 equal installments between October 2020 and March 2021. In this, an amount of about Rs. 700 crore of 12 lakh small entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, small traders will be collected in the coming months

  • Beneficiaries of Sambal and domestic consumers who had received electricity bills of Rs. 100 or less in April will get less than Rs. 100 bill in May, June and July also, they will have to pay only Rs. 50 per month in the month of May, June and July. This will benefit about 63 lakh beneficiaries to the tune of Rs 100 crore.

  • Such domestic consumers, who had received electricity bills of less than Rs. 100 in the month of April, but have received or receive bills of over Rs. 100 but less than Rs. 400, they will have to pay only Rs. 100 per month in place of bill amount of May, June and July. This will benefit about 28 lakh beneficiaries to the tune of Rs. 150 crore.

  • Such domestic consumers whose electricity bills were more than Rs. 100 and less than Rs. 400 in April but have received or will receive bills of more than Rs. 400 in the month of May, June and July, they will have to pay only half of the amount of the bill. Decision can be taken after checking the amount of the remaining bill. With this, about 8 lakh beneficiaries will have to pay only half of the bill amount. Consumers will get a benefit of about Rs 200 crore.

  • A facility has been given to the domestic consumers to send self-reading through app.

  • Consumers will be given an additional one percent incentive on payment of April and May bills by the due date. This amount will be maximum Rs. 10 thousand for domestic and low tension consumers and maximum Rs. One lakh for high tension consumers.

  • All 3 phase consumers were given the facility of reduction in contract demand after 7 days from submitting the application in the lockdown period. This facility is in place for a period upto 15 days after the lockdown ends.
