DhumalOn 18-08-2009, The Himachal Pradesh assembly passed the Himachal Pradesh Electricity (Duty) Bill 2009, that would enable re-enacting of the old law and provide for levy of electricity duty on basis of power consumption. Chief minister PK Dhumal said the new law had been necessitated on the recommendation of the Accountant General where it had been suggested that instead of taking the matter time and again to the assembly, having a law that would provide for enhancing electricity duty as percentage would solve the issue.

Debating upon the new legislation Kuldeep Pathania and Rajesh Dharmani apprehended that such a method of computing duty would have an impact on billing.

Defending the bill, chief minister said that new duty levying mechanism would not add any burden on the agriculture sector or on poor consumers. The bill was adopted by majority vote.
