The State electricity regulator has allowed Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) to charge a hefty Rs 15 per unit for every unit consumed above this limit.
Domestic power consumers in Kerala will now be charged double the per unit tariff if consumption was to exceed a newly prescribed 300 units.The KSEB had sought permission to levy Rs 11 per unit for those exceeding the 200-unit limit per month, but the commission fixed it at 300 units per month.

The prevailing tariff for domestic consumers in the 300 to 500 unit slab is Rs 7.50 per unit. On crossing the 300 unit consumption limit, this will go up to Rs 15. The new tariff will come into force from December 15 and will be valid until May 31, 2013, during which period the situation would be reviewed on a monthly basis. The regulator has decided to impose 25 per cent power cut for all industrial units which are not within the ambit of the cyclical load-shedding concurrently.
