The Energy Minister added that in addition to the energy charge in the electricity bill, a dual surcharge is levied on the consumers who consume electricity. During the last quarter i.e. during the quarter of July 2020 to September 2020, all the four power distribution companies under Gujarat Energy Development Corporation Limited were levying fuel surcharge at the rate of Rs. 2.00 per unit. Against this, fuel surcharge has to be levied at the rate of Rs 1.81 per unit during the October-December-December 2020 period. Due to this reduction, power consumers will get a relief of Rs 3 crore.

Minister Patel added that the main reason for the reduction in fuel surcharge is that during this quarter, the state government has procured gas at cheaper rates in the interest of consumers and has produced gas-based power which has reduced the cost of power generation. This means that more than 1.40 crore consumers will get this benefit directly, which will reduce their electricity bills and reduce the bill, he added.
