"Remove ceiling on energy usage for LT consumers"- TEA

Oct '08
We are happy to note that the Government has considered the appeal made to roll back the power charges and has withdrawn its decision to levy higher rate for those domestic consumers who consume over 600 units in two months and who do not meet the stipulation of 20% reduction in energy consumption.

In similar line, we are also seeking the removal of ceiling on energy consumption for LT consumers.

We wish to inform that when the knitwear garment units, largely LT consumers, are suffering from power cut and struggling hard to meet their shipment schedule in time, the announcement on bringing down LT consumers' consumption by 20% and the ceiling on energy consumption of 2000 units in two months is a bolt from the blue, not to mention the increase in power cost due to captive power generation.

At this juncture, the charging of 50% for the consumption of units more than 2000 units will have a detrimental effect to the LT consumers especially to the garment exporting units.

The impact of the concerned measure announced by the Government will have a cascading effect on the garment exporting units and ultimately leads to job losses.

The garment exporting units which provide employment in large number, especially to the people hailing from rural areas, that too mainly women have to be given priority with the best possible supporting measure as like given to the domestic consumers immediately.

Considering the adverse impact, we request the Hon'ble Chief Minister to advise TNEB to remove the ceiling for energy consumption for LT consumers and if not possible at least for the exporting units.
