    Karnataka hikes electricity prices by Rs.2.89 day after announcing 200 free units

    June 6, 2023 - Mint


      New Delhi, June 6 -- The Karnataka government has hiked electricity prices by Rs.2.89 per unit for those above 'free' 200-unit slab. CM Siddaramaiah-led Congress government had on Monday announced that Karnataka would implement the 'Gruha Jyoti scheme' under which free electricity below 200 units every month will be distributed to all households. It will be implemented from 1 July.

      Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said tenants are also eligible to avail the 'Gruha Jyoti' scheme, under which 200 units of free power will be provided to all domestic consumers in the state from 1 July.

      "We will provide free power (up to 200 units) to those living in rented accommodation as well. Poor people who consume less than 200 units of power will not have to pay the bills. This (scheme) will be applicable to the tenants," Siddaramaiah told reporters here. He also clarified that this scheme was not applicable for commercial usage.

      The 'Gruha Jyoti' scheme was one of the 5 guarantees promised by the Congress ahead of the 2023 assembly elections.
