Let us work with our CM and his leadership team to get them addressed.

As per yr comment rebate 2 electricity bills <400 units is not fair.
Then why issuance of BPL cards is fair, at the cost of govt revenues?
Why poor children r served meals/books/dresses in MCD & other govt schools free of cost.
These money could have been used for some other useful purposes, like building roads, new Power Plants etc

The energy consumption formula is very simple: If 1000 watt is consumed for one hour, then the energy consumption is one unit(taking no loss otherwise into consideration).
Any body can check if his energy meter is running fast by recording the energy meter readings in this way(by taking the average of few hrs consumption).
At the most he can take the help of an electrician initially.
Now if the meter is found running fast the consumer can approach the authority for due rectification.

(a) I agree that there may be few meters which are running faster. Why not to establish a third party but respected company with a scope of checking meter who ever likes to get them checked with a fee, such agency may be agreed by all three parties, Government, Discoms and consumers. This is only point worth discussion other points may not be useful , how I will tell.
(b). Cost of installation and evacuation of power from Solar Power makes it costlier than even Thermal power which Delhi is receiving costing Rs 6.00 per unit or more than that based on amount of power generated. Now every one seem to be thinking it a panache but even state governments are not ready to buy costly Solar Power, Now you decide on your own comment about installing solar power on every roof.
(c). Power cost in Delhi is lower than it is in neighboring states like UP which have their own Thermal Plants then how can this be justified most of your claims that power to be cheaper?
(d) Arvind Kejariwal has not done any magic he has diverted funds from useful services like roads or hospital to pay electricity bill of some consumer in Delhi. Is that economically justifiable? many of you need to answer this.
(e) Regrading replacing public lights with LED ones I would like to remind that these lights are so costly that many of us have not installed in our homes. then how can u assume that these lights will remain safe on roads? more
AK has welcomed subsidy/rebate beyond 400 units/month consumption suggested by Sh Vijendra Gupta BJP-MLA-Rohini, but requested him to make the center convenience to pay this extra burden(consumption beyond 400 units/month).
As BJP is ruling at the center, there wnt b any problem 4 it.
AAP has already implemented its poll promise on free water(20KL/month & half power tariff upto 400 units/month as done earlier in 49 days ruling.
(This really helps in power & water conservation and people spent them judiciously).

One more fact I would like to highlight about the charges levied by the Power Supply House is that they do not charge as per scale prescribed by them. Owner ho consumes more than 400 units, the rate starts from 400 units i.e the charges are Rs 5.95 /- per unit and not as per scale 1-200 and 201 to 400 units. Thus the Power Supply houses are charging Rs 200/- to 250/- more than the prescribed rates from one house owner. This aspects may be looked into and greater attention is required in this regard. If need be, I ma ready to present the case. Ram Yadav more
