After higher property taxes and water tariffs, get set to pay more for your power bills from April 1 in Karnataka. The Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) recently announced revised tariffs across domestic and industrial segments.
Domestic consumers will now have to shell out an average of 40 paise more per unit of energy. This translates into an 11 per cent increase in the average monthly bill of a household that consumes 150 units and was paying around `900. The revised bill will be `988, excluding fixed charges. The new rates will see domestic consumers pay 30 paise more for the first 30 units consumed, 40 paise more between 31 and 100 units and 50 paise more for the next two slabs from 101-200 units and 201 and above.
