The common man of many states seems upset with the electricity bill. Sometimes consumers are billed excessively. These days, a similar incident has come to light in Odisha. In Kalahandi (Odisha), below poverty line (BPL) families living below the poverty line have been given electricity bills of more than Rs 12,000.
The increased electricity bill sparked outrage among locals and burnt effigies of state energy minister Dibya Shankar Mishra. Locals say they have used a bulb and a bill of Rs 12,500 has been handed over.
Talking to the news agency ANI, a local said that I lit a bulb and I was paid an electricity bill of Rs 12,500. After all, I want to ask how much does it cost to light a bulb?
According to the news published in Live Mint, a rural Karunakar Sagar told that I am using a bulb. I can pay 300 to 500 rupees electricity bill. Unchak I was handed a bill of Rs 12,500. How do I fill it? After all, how much electricity is spent burning a bulb? He came at the time of the pandemic and took 500 rupees from me. Now he has come after 5-6 months and is charging 12,500 rupees from me.
He said that I fall in the BPL category and I got this connection under the Ujjwala scheme. They have provided us only wires. Haven’t put any meter yet. I ask if the Minister of Energy is for rich people or poor people.
Meanwhile, state president of Congress Party Niranjan Patnaik (Niranjan Patnaik) blamed the government and companies for increasing the electricity rates so that their losses can be repaid.
OPCC President Niranjan Patnaik said, “I am concerned that the Odisha government has increased the electricity rates in the state by 30 paise per unit.” To hide the shortcomings of the government and power companies, the BJD government is loosening the pockets of the common man.
Let us know that two days ago, Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission -OERC approved the annual revenue requirement and tariff order for fiscal year 2021-22 and said that the new The tariff will be applicable from 4 April.
