Power tariff shock to people of TelanganaA few days before the Telangana Chief Minister said that he will not agree to fix meters for measuring the electricity supplied to farmers for water pumps. He abused the central government for insisting on the same. He will collect some fixed nominal amounts only.
Now he accepted for increasing the tariff of all consumers and the increase also a very big increase. Almost the increase will be about 14%. While the power tariff will be hiked by 50 paise per unit on domestic consumers and one rupee per unit for other consumers.
A farmer has to pay more for his domestic consumption. But he need not pay more for their consumption in the fields. But a farmer. who is not having the capacity to pay for his agriculture consumption. can pay higher rates for his house consumption? We should not expect answers from the government for such questions, I think.
