Delhi govt wants domestic power tariff for lawyers’ chambers
New Delhi, Jul 21 (PTI) The Delhi government has asked the city power regulator to consider charging domestic rates for lawyers’ chambers in courts across the national capital.
In his letter to DERC Secretary, Deputy Secretary (Power) Chandan Sengupta said, “It is, therefore, requested to kindly consider the request of lawyers and take further necessary action.”
If DERC, an autonomous body, approves the same, lawyers’ chambers may also come under the Delhi government’s subsidy scheme as it is only for domestic power consumers and not for commercial connections.
As per the scheme, those consuming up to 400 units get 50 per cent subsidy on their bills. The scheme benefits around 36 lakh or 90 per cent of the consumers in the national capital.
