Within twelve days of coming back to power in Delhi, AAP government earlier today slashed power tariff by 50 percent for consumption up to 400 units per month and 20,000 litres of free water per household every month.
“The reduction in power tariff will benefit 36,06,428 families, which is around 90 percent of the city’s population,” Sisodia said, adding that those consuming over 400 units would have to pay the full bill. Water tariff will also be charged if the consumption limit exceeds 20,000 litres. The rates will come into effect from March 1, announced Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia here after a Cabinet meeting.
Slashing power tariff and giving free water were two of the key electoral promises made by the AAP ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls, which the party won with a landslide majority.
