No power tariff hike in Goa this year

The Goa Electricity Department has stated that there will be no power tariff hike for 2021-22.

The tariff has remained the same since 2019-20 despite the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) recommending a hike in tariff as the state government did not enforce it due to the pandemic.  The fuel power purchase cost adjustment (FPPCA) which varies every quarter has been reduced by 39 per cent.
