Maharashtra government will seek the CAG audit of Tata Power and Reliance Infrastructure power companies supplying electricity to Mumbai, State Power Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule informed the State Assembly.
Directives in this regard will be issued on Wednesday, the minister said while replying to a discussion in the Lower House on supplementary demands of his department.
The government will also make efforts to ensure that consumers get power at uniform rate up to 100 units, irrespective of the power supplier, the minister said.
“Next year, we will make efforts to have uniform power tariff by all providers up to 300 units,” Bawankule said.
The demand for CAG audit of Tata Power and Reliance Infra was made by BJP MLA Ashish Shelar, who claimed that the two companies charge “inflated” tariff from consumers.
Mumbai consumers get power supply from Tata Power, Reliance Infrastructure, Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport undertaking and Mahavitaran.
