New tariff policy aims to ‘empower’ the consumer

  • The government is planning to bring a new power tar- iff policy with a focus on empowering the consumers.
  •  The rights include 24X7 power supply to consumers  and in case of any load shedding, penalty will be  levied on distribution companies (discoms) and  credited into consumers account.
  • A draft of the bill was already placed before the Union  Cabinet and in all likelihood it would be cleared soon
