No electricity bill if consumption less than 200 units in Delhi: CM Kejriwal

By Vinit Wahi / New Delhi

With ensuing Delhi assembly elections in mind, the AAP government announced today that people living in the capital do not have to pay any amount of their electricity bills if their power consumption does not exceed 200 units.

Making the announcement at a press conference here, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the Delhi government will give full subsidy to those consuming up to 200 units of electricity.

He also said those consuming 201 to 401 units of electricity will continue to get 50 per cent power subsidy from the government.

“Those in Delhi who consume up to 200 units of electricity do not need to pay their electricity bills. They will get a zero electricity bill. Consumers of 201-400 units of electricity will receive approximately 50 per cent subsidy,” Kejriwal said.

“People used to pay Rs 622 for 200 units of electricity till yesterday, now it’s free. For 250 units they used to pay Rs 800, now they’ll pay Rs 252. For 300 units, they used to pay Rs 971, now they’ll pay Rs 526. For 400 units, they used to pay Rs 1320, now they’ll pay Rs 1075,” he added.

Calling the day a historic day for Delhi, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted saying, “Every family deserves a life of dignity. Just like good education and healthcare, a basic quantum of electricity to run lights/fans at home is essential for that.”

“Delhi electricity sector has undergone historic reforms in last five years,” Kejriwal tweeted.
