MSEDCL to bill residents Rs 2 per unit more if consumption exceeds 300 units

Some of the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) residential consumers will now have to pay an additional of at least Rs 2 per unit every month for the next five months, depending on consumption, with power utility firms announcing fuel adjustment charges (FAC).

The FAC levied for consumption of 301-500 units of electricity will be Rs 2.05 per unit and it will be Rs 2.35 for units over 500. The minimum monthly bill for some high-end consumers will be as high as Rs 7,500.
