Gogoi skips power tariff hike

Caught in a barrage of criticism, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday directed the power department not to go for power tariff hike at last for the time being.

According to the chief minister Gogoi, it is not right time for the government to hike the power tariff as the consumers’ relief is the need of the hour.  Instead, Gogoi asked the finance department to initiate steps for providing subsidy to the Assam Power Distribution Company in view of the roll back decision.

The Assam Electricity Regulatory Commission recently cleared the proposal to hike the power tariff from December 1 next generating protest across the state.
