Chandigarh, Jun 27: The Haryana government has modified the power tariff subsidy scheme to provide affordable power supply to the enterprises located in the state, an Industries and Commerce department spokesperson said on Thursday.
A notification has been issued in this regard, he further said.
He said that an enterprise located in 'C' and 'D' category blocks having industrial connection of connected load of 20 KW or less would be provided a power tariff subsidy of Rs two per unit.
He further said that this scheme would be applicable from November 1, 2018.

The power companies or utilities such as Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (UHBVN) or Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) would provide this benefit by deducting the subsidy amount in the electricity bills.
The amount of power tariff subsidy granted would be reimbursed by the Industries and Commerce department from its budget, he added. (UNI)
