Punjab Government Free Electricity.

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today announced 300 units of free electricity each month for every household in the state from July 1.

Mr Mann said Scheduled Castes, backward castes, below-poverty-line households and freedom fighters currently getting free 200 units each month will now get 300 units of electricity monthly,

Adding that if their consumption is more than 600 units in two months, then they will be charged only for the exceeded units.

The Chief Minister said for other households, if the electricity consumption exceeds 600 units in two months, then the consumer will have to pay for the entire power usage.

Moreover, he said there would be no increase in the electricity tariff for industrial and commercial consumers while free power to the farming community would continue.

The announcement comes as the Bhagwant Mann-led government in the state completed one month in the office today.

Providing free electricity to every household for up to 300 units was one of the major promises made by AAP in the run-up to the Punjab Assembly polls.

AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, in a tweet, lauded the Punjab government's decision to provide 300 units of free electricity to every household in the state.

And said that AAP does not make false promises, unlike other political parties.

Meanwhile, Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring took a potshot at the Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and questioned the move referring to the conditions attached to it.
