Gives a rebate of 33 percent on fixed charges of power tariffs for the lockdown period.
In a decision aimed at providing relief to the industrial consumers, the state government has decided to waive off 33 percent of fixed charges on power tariffs for the lockdown period. The decision was taken after the government of India (GoI) provided a rebate of Rs 39.42 Crore to the Uttarakhand Power Corporation Limited (UPCL) on the fixed charges. The secretary power Radhika Jha said that due to lockdown the industrial activities in the state remained ceased from March 22 to May 17. The UPCL would provide a rebate of 33 percent on the fixed charges to the industrial users for a period of 57 days. It is pertinent to mention here that the state government had already decided to suspend the collection of fixed charges from the industrial users from March to May. They were given an option to settle the fixed charges in four instalments from July to October. The government had also directed the UPCL not to impose any late fee on the fixed charges.
