Gujarat government extends electricity bill payment deadline

The Gujarat government has made an important announcement to provide financial relief to the state's power consumers in the event of a lockdown caused by the Corona virus. According to the decision, the deadline for paying electricity bills for March and April to all electricity distribution companies in the state has been extended to May 30, 2020. It has also decided to provide financial relief to small and middle class traders, shopkeepers and businesses in the state, exempting all such LT customers in the state from levying fixed charges, demand charges in their April electricity bills.

 Exemption of LT electricity customers from such fixed charge, demand charge
 Earlier, the state government had decided to exempt such LT power users from fixed charges and demand charges only in lockdowns. The Chief Minister has now announced to exempt all LT electricity consumers from such fixed charge, demand charge with a view to giving more economic relief to small, medium traders, shopkeepers and industrialists.

This rule does not apply to these people
 In the case of HT customers in the state, it has been decided that if the power consumption of such power consumers during lockdown is less than 50 per cent of the average consumption of the previous 3 months, they will be exempted from the fixed charge demand charge in the April bill. This exemption will not apply to banks, telecom companies, petrochemical complexes, refineries and dairies as well as hospitals. Private hospitals have been largely closed during the lockdown. However, hospitals whose power consumption is 50 per cent lower than the average of the previous 3 months of lockdown have been exempted from the fixed charge demand charge.
