Nirupam begins hunger strike for cut in power tariff in Mumbai

Nirupam started his agitation outside the Reliance Energy divisional office at Kandivali in north Mumbai.

Mumbai was excluded from the 20 per cent cut in power tariff charged to domestic consumers, industries and power looms by the state-run Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company (MahaVitaran), he lamented while addressing his supporters. The Lok Sabha MP from Mumbai North said he would continue his agitation till the demand was met.

The Cabinet had last week decided that the concession of cut in power tariff by 20 per cent would be applicable to consumers with consumption of less than 300 units. The cut in power tariff will not be applicable in Mumbai where there are players other than MahaVitaran supply power.

Mumbai consumers get power supply from Tata Power, Reliance Infrastructure and BrihanMumbai Electric Supply and Transport undertaking, the government had said.
