Electricity Prices Increased By 30 Paise Per Unit by APDCL

Guwahati: The state’s per-unit electricity prices have once again increased by the Assam Power Distribution Company Limited (APDCL).

With effect from November 2022, the APDCL has decided to increase the cost of electricity for all power users by 30 paise per unit.

Customers received instructions from the APDCL regarding this on December 9.

According to reports, the APDCL declared on November 25 of this year that it would levy a 79 pence per unit Fuel and Power Purchase Price Adjustment (FPPPA) penalty on electricity bills for the months of November, December 2022, and January 2023 for all consumer categories.

On November 26, 2022, the electricity distribution business decided to stop collecting the EPPPA levies. On December 9, APDCL imposed FPPPA once more at a rate of 30 pence per unit and published a notice to that effect.

However, customers were unaware of APDCL’s U-turn on FPPPA. After receiving the November power bill in December 2022, it was brought to the levy.

In September, the APDCL acknowledged that there were inconsistencies in the monthly electricity bills of its customers, claiming that while small abnormalities had existed in the past, they had only recently become apparent. Customers were further advised by the power distribution firm to come forward and file complaints if they discovered errors on their bills.
