No power tariff hike this year: OERC


Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Electricity Regulatory Commission (OERC) today announced that power tariff will remain unchanged for 2018-19.

“The power tariff will remain unchanged for domestic consumers as well as commercial and industrial units for this year,” OERC’s Director (Regulatory Affairs) Priyabrat Patnaik said to reporters.

The Commission took the decision rejecting proposals of power generation and distribution companies to increase power tariffs, thinking the tariff hike will put extra burden on consumers.
