People of Delhi should be a little shocked now, now free electricity will not automatically get free. Although most people like free things, but some people also object to it. Something similar was going on in Delhi for some time. Yes, water and electricity is free in Delhi, but only up to 200 units will get electricity free, from 201 to 400 units, there is a discount of up to 50 percent. Similarly, the water bill exemption also applies. Delhiites will now have to apply online or offline to get free electricity or electricity subsidy. Here we are giving you the information about the online method.
Let us tell you that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced a few days ago that now only those people in the state will get electricity subsidy, who will themselves demand for it, that is, they will apply. It was decided in the cabinet meeting of the Delhi government that the government would ask the people whether they want subsidy on electricity bill here and not here and accordingly the decision on subsidy would be taken.
If you want free electricity i.e. subsidy on electricity bill, then you can apply online in this way.
According to a government official, to get subsidy on electricity bill, customers will have to register through the discom portal or app.
Customers can apply by filling the form by visiting the official website of Power Discom.
Customers can also apply through the mobile app.
In Delhi, if more than 80 percent people pay electricity bill online, then online facility will be used more.
Note that people who are not using online mode can fill the application form and submit it to the Discom office. Complete information about how to register for subsidy is likely to be available by the end of the month. From October 1, 2022, the new rule will be applicable for whether to take electricity subsidy in Delhi or not.
