Many of you have approached us complaining about the abnormal hike in the electricity bill for the month of June 2019. We had studied the matter. It has been found that the new tariff order which was announced on 20th May 2019 by Hon’ble JERC was effective from 1st of June 2019. Therefore, the tariff hike was effective from 1st June 2019. The tarrif order was silent over extension of regulatory surcharge for April and May 19. Now it has been clarified that tariff as prevailing up to 31.03.19 has been extended with all surcharges including regulatory surcharge up to 31.05.19.
Therefore, regulatory surcharge which was not recovered during the months of April and May 19, has now been recovered.
Since higher tariff was not imposed during these two months, net effect is same.
This is one time recovery.
It is hope that the matter now stands clarified.
