DERC slashes power tariff for low-end consumers

Delhi's power regulator DERC on October 22 made adjustments in the tariff structure which could reduce monthly bills of low-end consumers by around 15 per cent. DERC's act comes following widespread anger against hike in electricity bills.

In an order, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission announced reversing its earlier decision to abolish the 201-400 units slab and introduction of 0-400 units slab for calculation of tariff.

Restoration of original slabs means consumers will be charged Rs 3.70 per unit upto consumption of 200 units while Rs 5.50 will be charged for consumption between 201 and 400 units. The regulator has hiked per unit rate by 10 paisa for consumption beyond 400 units for domestic consumers and decided to charge Rs 6.50 per unit against current Rs 6.40.

The DERC had abolished 201-400 units slabs while announcing 26 per cent hike in tariff in June. The decision to revert to original slabs will come into restrospective effect from July 1 when the hiked tariff came into force.
