Kerala Chief MinisterThe Kerala Cabinet decided to waive surcharge on domestic power consumption of up to 120 units a month. The government will provide Rs.54 crore to the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) to exempt ordinary consumers from paying the surcharge of 25 paise a unit, Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan told presspersons after the Cabinet meeting.

The State Electricity Regulatory Commission had permitted the board to realise a surcharge of 25 paise a unit from all consumers for six months from April 1, with higher charges for using above 300 units a month.

Mr. Achuthanandan said the board had sought the imposition of surcharge to meet the additional burden on purchase of power at a higher cost.

The purchase was necessitated by the drought and cut in allocations from the Central pool. The purchase of power from outside the Central pool would cost more because of the increase in prices effected by the Centre for naphtha and diesel, he said.
