Thiruvananthapuram: The Electricity Regulatory Commission chairman Preman Dinraj assured that the electricity price hike would not be a ‘shock’ to the public who are already in trouble due to the skyrocketing fuel prices. Increase in electricity price will not be issued for the next five years as and when KSEB requests apart from the announced price increase. Electricity price hike will be declared every year as per the announced rate and it will not double the charge for the commoners, said the chairman.

The chairman of the regulatory commission was addressing the discussions over the electricity board’s recommendation over price hike. KSEB had demanded an increase of 90 paise this year and 30, 14, 17, 8 paise respectively in the next four years in the electricity charge.

The price rise will be announced in July 2022. The increase in electricity charge will be introduced by considering the demands of both the public and KSEB.
