Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-06-12

The power consumers can breathe a sigh of relief. There will be no no change in Retail Supply Tariff (RST) in Odisha for all classes of consumers during 2019-20, the Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission (OERC) announced today.

 

"Retail tariff for financial year 2019-20 remains unchanged since last year. Tariff order for FY 2019-20 is effective from June 1, 2019," an OERC statement said.


The power tariff was also not hiked last year. The notification regarding the tariff finalisation was kept in a sealed cover due to the model code of conduct (MCC) which was in place for the Lok Sabha elections.


 


Like in the previous fiscal, consumers will have to pay tariff at Rs 2.50 per unit for the first 50 units, Rs 4.30 per unit above 50 units and up to 200 units, Rs 5.30 per unit above 200 and up to 400 units. The tariff has been fixed at Rs 5.70 per unit above 400 units per month.

 

The OERC also said that LT single phase consumer who has made full, timely payment of his energy bill for 12 months of the financial year will get extra rebate equal to his rebate for the month of March.
