The president NITMA Rajiv Garg in a statement said that industry in Punjab was expecting an early implementation of policy to supply power to industrial sector at Rs 5per unit as was announced on 17 th April 2017 by the government of Punjab. The decision would make the power costlier by paise 78 from next month.

As per PSERC orders, the Time of Day tariff was also withdrawn that comprised of normal tariff minus Rs 1 per KVA from 10PM T 6 am next day (8 hours) for the industrial consumers.
