Prices of appliances under UJALA revised post GST
The prices of energy efficient appliances distributed under GoI’s Unnat Jeevan by Affordable LEDs and Appliances for All (UJALA) scheme have been revised, owing to the GST roll-out. The 9 W LED bulbs are priced Rs 70, 20 W LED tube lights at Rs 220, and 5-star rated fans will be available at Rs 1,200.
EESL, under the administration of Ministry of Power, Government of India and the nodal agency for implementation of the UJALA programme has appealed all consumers not to pay any amount over and above the prices fixed by EESL for the UJALA appliances.
If consumers notice any discrepancy in prices, they should immediately report such cases at “Register your complaint” section on UJALA dashboard, or on EESL social media handles - for Twitter @EESL_India and for Facebook @EESLIndia. They can also contact the All-India EESL Helpline number 1800 180 3580 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Consumers can also register their complaints at the EESL complaint logging portal - http://support.eeslindia.org/.
