In a major development that will boost the homestay business in the state, the Electricity Regulatory Commission has handed over the order to implement domestic power tariff for the homestays in the state to the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB). This was revealed by the Tariff and Regulatory Affairs Cell after an RTI was filed by the Kerala Homestay and Tourism Society director M P Sivadathan.
