As communicated before, on 3rd Sept 2019, UPERC has increased Electricity rate by ~15% for Group Housing Societies i.e now unit rate is Rs7 and above that they are charging 5% Electricity Duty + 5% transmission loss is allowed, which makes the per unit Rate as Rs 7.70, which is very high and Fixed charge is also increased to Rs110/KW and the new rates are effective from 12th September 2019.
However, to provide relief to residents, BOM has decided to rationalize the tariff in the light of increased tariff from electricity department.
From 12th of September 2019, new tariff will be as per below:
Fixed Charges: No changed i.e. Rs99.75
Unit Charge: Rs7 + 5% = Rs7.35.
Overall, we are getting relief as below:
Fixed charges: Rs10 per KW/Month
Unit Charge: Rs0.35 per KWH
We will monitor this for few months and will come back with details if required.
Together, we can make our society a better place to live!
