KSERC reduced the tariff rate for domestic consumers above a ceiling of 200 units a month from Rs.8.83/unit to Rs.7.85/unitKerala State Electricity Regulatory commission(KSERC) in its order dated 07-11-2008, had reduced the tariff rate for domestic consumers above a ceiling of 200 units a month from Rs.8.83/unit to Rs.7.85/unit. The new revision will be applicable for consumption above 80% of their average consumption in the case of Low tension industrial, commercial and non-domestic  consumers.The restrictions are now applicable to LT consumers of licensees also.

Kerala State Electricity Board had filed the said petition on 24-10-2008 for restricting consumption of power to 80% on all licensees who are supplied power by KSEB. KSERC had conducted public hearing in Thiruvananthapuram, Thrissur and Palakkad during first week of Nevember 2008. Representatives of Thrissur Corporation, Kannan Deven Hill Plantations Company Private Limited, Cochin Special Economic Zone, KINFRA, Technopark and M/s Cochin Port Trust and other stakeholders and consumers participated in the public hearing.Most of the licensees agreed to pass on the restriction to their consumers to avoid descrimination, but objected the proposal to impose restriction on the licensee.
M/S Technopark informed that, In the present recessionary condition of the global economy, imposing further power restrictions on the consumers would be additional burden. They requested to exempt Technopark from imposing restrictions and surcharge.

Considering these facts, KSERC had ordered to extend the power restrictions on the LT consumers of licensees to the tune of 20% except the following:

a. Domestic consumers whose monthly consumption is not more than 200 units/month.
b. Offices of political parities approved by Election Commission of India, Libraries and reading rooms other than libraries and reading rooms of educational institutions, sports/arts clubs, sailing/swimming activities (with connected load not exceeding 2000 W)
c. Poultry farms, silk worm breeding units, agricultural consumers including dewatering and lift irrigation, livestock farms (minimum number of milch cattle shall be five) and combination of livestock and dairy farms, piggery farms (minimum six breedable adult animals in the farm)
d. Orphanages, schools and hostels of mentally retarded students, deaf/ dumb / blind/physically handicapped persons, old age homes, Cheshire homes, SoS childrens’ Villages, polio homes, cancer and palliative care centres, HIV rehabilitation centres and other similar institutions recognized by the Government.

Licensees shall fix the quota for their respective consumers at 80% of the average monthly consumption from 1st April 2007 to 31st March 2008. In the case of new consumers, average consumption shall be 50 units/kW/month and the quota shall be worked out accordingly. The excess consumption over the quota shall be charged as per the rates approved by the Commission on a monthly basis. In the case of LT domestic consumers, consumption above 200 units per month shall be charged at rate approved by the Commission. No fuel surcharge is applicable for the consumption above the quota fixed and consumption in excess of 200 untis per month in the case of domestic consumers.
