If you are a lawyer and living in Delhi, then there is good news for you. Recently Delhi government announced a 50% discount on their electricity bill.
Lawyers who have their chambers inside the premises of Supreme Court will have to pay only half of their total monthly bill.
Delhi high court and the local courts are also going to be given concession and will get reduced electricity bills. This will happen because the charged domestic power rates are already lower than the commercial ones.
A notification regarding the same was issued on Friday after governor Anil Baijal approved the Delhi cabinet’s decision. This will extend the subsidy scheme on domestic consumption to the lawyers in Delhi.
Electricity department made their official announcement that the Governor is ready to extend the provisions of electricity subsidy. This will apply to all the lawyers having their chambers inside all courts in Delhi.
It will give all the lawyers who are consuming up to 400 units of electricity, a 50% subsidy on their bills. It would be implemented from the next month. The subsidy amount will automatically adjust the final monthly bill.
This is an appreciable move. Delhi lawyers appreciated this move. It would ultimately benefit around 9,000 to 10,000 lawyers who have their chambers in different court complexes.
There are a lot of other things that Delhi government is trying to implement, according to a Delhi official. He also added, “Whatever we promised to the Delhi people; we tried our best to fulfill their expectations and Delhites are happy with AAP Government.”
