Odisha Power Consumers To Get Special Rebate For Timely Bill Payment Every Month

OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: Power consumers in Odisha will be given a special rebate if they make bill payment by the due date every month in a financial year.

According to reports, the Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission (OERC) has allowed this special rebate to low transmission (LT) single phase consumers who pay their electricity bills within due date for all months in a financial year.

The special rebate amount will be equal to that of March. All consumers are given a rebate by power distribution companies for payment of their monthly power bills before due date.

Consumers who pay bills within the due date for all the 12 months of a financial year, will be entitled for a rebate equal to the rebate of the last month of the fiscal as the new tariff year starts from April every financial year, TNIE reported.

The special rebate is over and above the others allowed for consumers. Consumers with pre-paid meters are entitled to four per cent rebate on pre-paid amount and LT domestic and single-phase general-purpose consumers are getting four per cent rebate for digital payment. This apart, consumers opting to avail e-bill will get discount of Rs 10 per bill.

However, Discoms will now give ‘Green Consumer’ certification to consumers of any category if 100 per cent of their power requirement is met from renewable sources. Such consumers will have to pay additional 20 paise per unit as premium over and above the normal rate of energy charges. This facility will be in force for one year and applications need to be submitted to the Discom concerned in advance to avail the facility.
