Delhi Announces 50% Subsidy on Lawyers Electric-Bills

The lawyers’ chamber in Delhi’s court would now get cheaper electricity as the energy department has approved the subsidised charges on electricity consumption.

The first 400 units of electricity will be available at 50 per cent rates. The proposal was mooted by Delhi cabinet and was sent to Lieutenant General for approval. The LG has approved the subsidised billing to encourage low electricity consumption.

The electricity providers have been informed of the subsidy scheme for the lawyers who operate from their chambers within the court premises.  

The scheme was announced during the 2015 polls. The scheme is valid on bills from Oct 1, 2017 to Mar 31, 2018.
