Delhi govt likely to slash power tariff by half, launch free water scheme
New Delhi: Delhi government is likely to slash power tariff by 50 per cent for consumption up to 400 units per month and launch a free water scheme today in line with election promises made by Aam Aadmi Party.
Sources said the AAP government may announce free 20,000 litres of water to every household per month.
“The government is going to announce its decision to cut power tariff by 50 per cent,” they said.
In its manifesto, AAP had promised to cut power tariff by 50 per cent immediately after coming to power and said the rates will be revised based on the findings of an CAG audit which the Kejriwal government had announced during its first stint.
The AAP had also promised 20 kilolitres (20,000 litres) of free water to every household per month. The previous AAP government had introduced the free water scheme but it was discontinued after it quit.
