Visakhapatnam: THE new tariff order released by AP Electricity Regulatory Commission came into effect for the financial year without any additional burden on the domestic consumers.

APERC Chairman CV Nagarjuna Reddy released the retail supply tariff order for FY 2021-22 at the corporate office of APEPDCL and announced that they had reduced power tariff from Rs 7.17 to Rs 6.37 per unit. There will be no monthly fixed charges. The proposal to include poultry and aquaculture sectors in industry category was rejected giving a big relief to the poultry and aquaculture farmers. Classification in the industry category would have forced them to pay Rs 6.70-Rs 7.30 from Rs 4.50 per unit.

While releasing the tariff order, Reddy said that new electricity charges would be applicable with effect from April 1. He said that after considering the views/objections/suggestions of all stakeholders both oral and written, the commission had prepared the retail tariff order.

APERC members P Raja Gopal Reddy and Thakur Ram Singh, CMD of APEPDCL Nagalakshmi Selvarajan and others were present.
