The power department has requested to raise the rates again and thus citizens can expect an increase in the electricity bills. Keeping in consideration the amount spent on the electricity this year which amounts to about 6949 crores, rates are likely to go up. At the present time, one unit costs about 7.25 rupees to the government including the subsidy given to certain sections of the society and the maximum subsidy is provided to the domestic consumers. The electricity rates charged to the domestic consumers is about 2.34 rupees at present.
