With new leadership, Energy Ministry prepares to lower down electricity tariff

KATHMANDU: Minister for Energy, Water Resources and Irrigation Pampha Bhusal is preparing to bring a policy to provide special facilities to the people living below the poverty line.

In a press conference held at the Ministry on Monday, she said that free electricity will be provided to such people.

“Energy is the raw material for economic and industrial development,” she said. She stressed on the need to focus on making development plans so that the electricity generated in Nepal can be used in the country.

Minister Bhusal also said that the tariff of electricity will also be reconsidered. “Our electricity tariff is expensive. According to general economics, the higher the production, the lower is the cost price. My experience as a consumer is that the higher the consumption, the lower the rate should be, but this is not the case here,” she said, “The electricity tariff should be reconsidered. Electricity tariff should be adjusted.”
