Arvind Kejriwal slams Centre for proposed amendments to Electricity Act | delhi news | Hindustan Times

Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed the Centre on Saturday for the amendments to the Electricity Act, 2003 proposed by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government.

Kejriwal said the proposed amendment would increase power tariffs across all states, including Delhi, by at least three times, and take away the right of state governments to decide power tariffs apart from constituting regulatory commissions.

Calling the Electricity Amendment Act, 2018 “draconian”, Kejriwal said the Bill would put an end to cross-subsidy, which at present helps keep electricity tariffs lower for small, medium and agricultural consumers by imposing higher rates on industrial and commercial consumers.
