Agartala, November 28 (TIWN): BJP had submitted 7 point charter of demands to the senior manager of the Durjoynagar Subdivision. On Friday, delegation led by the local members had submitted the deputation.
They demanded that along with the recent power tariff hike, in the different branches of power department, all over the state anarchy prevails which appears as a major suffering for the people, especially for the down-trodden of the society. The misdeed of the Govt is vested on the shoulders of the innocent people.

BJP had submitted 7 point charter of demands to the senior manager which includes:-

1)      Decrease in power tariff hike.

2)      Misdeed of the power stealers should not be vested upon the innocent people.

3)      For the benefit of the people, hook line method should be rooted out.

4)      Pending bills should be collected from the State Government offices and private offices.

5)      New electric lines should be used instead of the dangerous ones.

6)      Proper method should be maintained in case of submission of electric bills.

7)      Power tubes should be hoarded in all the States for the welfare of the people.

Few days ago Tripura Pragatishil Gramin Congress had organized protest rally demanding to immediate withdrawal of the recent power tariff hike. “TSECL hikes power tariff every year by showing different excuses, said the President of the Tripura Pragatishil Gramin Congress. It is to be mentioned here that on last November 22 Chairman of Tripura Electricity Regulatory Commission N.Chakraborty announced that in exercise of power vested under Section 62(1)(a) and Section 64 (3)(a) of Electricity Act, 2003 and Tariff Regulation 2004, the commission, after thorough examination of Tariff Petition and other records, public opinion and considering the interest of Consumers as well as Licensee (TSECL), passes the Tariff order for the FY 2014­15 by increasing 14.76% (Average per Unit) w. r. t. existing tariff.

But Govt. of Tripura has committed to provide Rs. 40.00 Cr. Subsidy to specific consumers at different rates and accordingly Average Tariff has come to 5.69% rise. Thus, Before Subsidy Average Tariff is Rs. 6.50/kwh and after subsidy average tariff is Rs. 5.99/kwh. Further TSCEL had also given clarification regarding increase in power tariff such as increase of Natural Gas Price in National/International level, increase of Power Purchase Cost from outside Central Sector Project and increase of Operational and Maintenance.
