The government has come to a head with the rectification of widespread complaints of increased electricity bills. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has said that the free usage of basic electricity consumers has been made free. For those who use monthly electricity above 150 units, they will subsidize 20% of the additional bill. The KSEB has given a concession of Rs 200 crore on the power issue during the lockdown. The subsidy applies to any amount that exceeds the previous bill amount. If the bill is not paid, the power connection will not be cut off. CM said that KSEB would have a liability of Rs 200 crore by giving concessions and that it would benefit 90 lakh, domestic consumers. There have been no concessions in electricity bills for agriculture, commerce, and industry.
