By on February 11, 2019 with 0 Comments  

As the electricity tariff rates have increased in several states in India in 2012, we at Bijli Bachao thought that it will be very useful for our readers to know about the latest tariff slabs and rates applicable for 2012-2013. So we did our research for all the states in India and below table lists all the latest tariff slabs and rates applicable for LT (Low Tension) domestic customers in urban centers in India. Please note that these do not apply to commercial, rural or HT connections. Also note that the slabs are not the only constituent of an electricity bill, and there are several other components that make up the electricity bill. You can use our calculator at link to calculate and evaluate your electricity bill.
