Punjab govt yet to pay Rs 7,700 crore subsidy bill to PSPCL

Punjab government has not paid monthly installments to Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL). The pending power subsidy bill continues to accumulate,  despite the state government planning to introduce a direct-bank transfer (DBT) scheme for power subsidies on agricultural connections. As per the revised tariff order approved by the Punjab State Electricity Regulation Commission (PSERC), the subsidy bill for this fiscal stood at Rs 10,917.40 crore. Sources in PSPCL said the state government has to date released Rs 3,221.49 crore and Rs 7,695.91 crore of subsidies to be paid to PSPCL are still pending. The remaining amount is to be cleared in the next two months, else it will lead to a massive carry forward of the pending subsidy bill for the next fiscal.
