Delhi CM says subsidy on electricity will become optional from October 1

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government will subsidize electricity only to those citizens of the national capital who want it. He said citizens would be asked whether they want to continue with the subsidy and the exercise in this regard would start soon.

“The Delhi government will now ask people whether they want to avail subsidy on electricity. From October 1, the subsidy will be provided only to those consumers who opt for it,” he said during an online briefing.

Currently, consumers in Delhi get a “zero” electricity bill of 200 units of electricity and a subsidy of 800 on power consumption from 201 to 400 units per month.

Kejriwal made this announcement while virtually launching the Delhi Startup Policy. Stating that the Delhi cabinet has passed the Delhi Startup Policy, the AAP convener said, “We are committed to make Delhi the startup capital of India.” Under the policy, the youth of Delhi will be helped to run business in the national capital with financial assistance from the government.

The Chief Minister said that the government will form a panel of chartered accountants and lawyers where entrepreneurs can take help. Stating that the government would give relief to entrepreneurs, Kejriwal said students of government institutions can take a leave of a year or two to focus on their business.
