Fuel charge reduced in electricity bill - See details of the announcement made by the state government

 An important decision of Chief Minister Shri Vijaybhai Rupani in the interest of the power consumers of the state. The fuel surcharge collected from the consumers by the state government owned power companies has been reduced by 19 paise per unit.  An announcement has been made by Energy Minister Shri Saurabhbhai Patel that this will provide relief to consumers to the tune of Rs 356 crore over the next three months.

 Gujarat Energy Minister Saurabhbhai Patel has said that the state government led by Chief Minister Shri Vijaybhai Rupani has taken various decisions in the interest of the consumers so that the consumers consuming electricity in the state get electricity at cheaper rates and the burden of power generation cost does not fall on the consumers.  The state government has decided to reduce the fuel surcharge charged by power companies from consumers by 19 paise per unit.

 As a result, more than 1.40 crore customers in the state will get a three-month relief of Rs 356 crore.

 At the same time, the Energy Minister added that in addition to the energy charge in the electricity bill, a dual surcharge is levied on the consumers consuming electricity. The recovery of this fuel surcharge is based on the formula prescribed by the Hon'ble Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission.  During the last quarter i.e. during the quarter from July 2020 to September 2020, all the four power distribution companies under Gujarat Energy Development Corporation Limited were charging fuel surcharge at the rate of Rs 2.00 per unit.  Against this, fuel surcharge is levied at the rate of Rs 1.81 per unit during the quarter of October 2020 to December 2020.

Thus, the reduction in fuel surcharge by 12 paise per unit in this quarter over the previous quarter was mainly due to the availability of cheap coal in the international market as well as the availability of cheap gas. This reduction will provide a relief of Rs 2 crore to power consumers.

 Minister Patel added that the main reason for the reduction in fuel surcharge is that during this quarter, the state government has purchased gas at cheaper rates in the interest of consumers and has produced gas based power which has reduced the cost of power generation.  This means that more than 1.40 crore consumers will get this benefit directly, which will reduce their electricity bills and reduce the bill, he added.
