Rajasthan: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot made a big announcement on Wednesday night through his Twitter account, “On observing inflation relief camps and talking to the public, there was feedback that there should be some change in the slab-wise exemption in electricity bills.”

  1. The electricity bill of those consuming up to 100 units per month will be zero. They will not have to pay any of the bills aforesaid.

2. The first 100 units of electricity will be given free of charge to families who consume more than 100 units per month; that is, no electricity charges will have to be paid for the first 100 units, no matter how much the bill comes in.

3. Keeping in mind, especially for middle-class consumers who consume electricity up to       200 units per month, the first 100 units will be free, along with fixed charges up to 200   units, a fuel surcharge, and all other charges that will be waived and paid by the state government.

The fuel surcharge was becoming a headache for the government in Rajasthan. Despite the exemption of 100 units in the bill, the amount was recovered as a fuel surcharge. Under this, many complaints were received. After this, the government decided to zero out the entire bill up to 100 units.
