Karnataka: All domestic categories, including the subsidized Bhagya Jyothi (BJ) and Kuteera Jyothi (KJ), have now been consolidated into a single category – LT-1. Domestic consumers with AEH and only-lighting connections, who were previously paying Rs 4.50 per unit for up to 100 units and Rs 7 or Rs 9 per unit beyond 100 units, will now face a uniform charge of Rs 5.90 per unit.

However, the tariff reduction may not affect consumers covered under the state government’s guarantee scheme – ‘Gruha Jyothi’ – as they will receive either a Zero Bill or a discounted bill. Nevertheless, those consuming more than 200 units per month are expected to benefit significantly, according to officials from the energy department.

Additionally, KERC has implemented a reduction in tariff for HT commercial consumers by Rs 1.25 paise per unit. Furthermore, their demand charges have been decreased by Rs 10 per KVA. The industrial tariff has also seen a reduction of 50 paise per unit, coupled with a decrease in demand charges amounting to Rs 10 per KVA.
