Domestic Electricity LT Tariff Slabs and Rates for all states in India in 2019

By on December 7, 2019 with 245 Comments  

Electricity Bill constitutes a significant amount of one’s household budget and knowing and understanding the tariff is necessary for working out a strategy to reduce it. The electricity tariff rates keep changing every year and we at Bijli Bachao thought that it will be very useful for our readers to know about the latest fixed and unit rates applicable for their State in in 2019. So we do our research for all the states in India regularly and publish a table that lists all the latest tariff slabs and rates applicable for LT (Low Tension) domestic customers in urban & rural centres in India. As the tariffs change, we update them on the list. Please note that these do not apply to commercial and HT connections. Also, note that the slabs are not the only constituent of an electricity bill, and there are several other components such as electricity duty, power purchase cost adjustment, surcharge, fuel surcharge, etc. and go to 10-25 per cent of the Bill. This can be seen in your energy bill. You can use our calculator at the link to calculate and evaluate your electricity bill for the LT domestic consumer.

Self-assessment of unit consumption

Most of our readers are always in doubt whether their energy meter is recording correctly or not. For this, one can either install a check-meter in their house and compare the readings recorded by the meters and if there is a significant difference, a complaint can be lodged with the power company. There is also another way of assessing the likely energy (in units). For this, take note of the wattage mentioned for each of the equipment/appliance in ‘watts’ on the nameplate and assess the usage in hours per day during the month you want to make the assessment. With this information available, you can use a calculator from UPPCL website which can give a fair idea of likely consumption.

For understanding the relation between watt, kilowatt, unit and Horsepower click here.

Energy Bill

There are basically two units one will come across while understanding an Energy Bill i.e. kW called connected/sanction load and another consumption of energy i.e. kWh (or also called unit). Besides this, there are other charges one can find in his bill namely (i) Electricity Duty (ii) Fuel Surcharge (iii) Power Purchase adjustment cost (iv) surcharge etc. and this can to a big sum depending on your state/discom.

Tariff Structure of various states

The terms and conditions for new connection or change of connected load, meter complaint, types of connections are either given in the tariff order itself or one should visit the ‘Supply Code’ of his state.
