Electricity Bills to be increased!
According to sources, your electricity bill could soon increase even if you are using the same amount of power. Meanwhile this, after the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) granted permission to five electricity supply companies to collect fuel adjustment charges (FAC) in their bills. Accordingly, FAC is the amount applied to bills of utilities based on the varying prices of fuel or coal.

Hence, in this case, the amount is being increased due to varying costs are borne by distributors between April and June. As per report electricity supply companies are allowed to make changes in the variable cost of power on a quarterly basis and it usually occurs due to a hike in the price of fuel. Also, the charges are passed on by electricity generation companies to distributors who in turn charge consumers.

Furthermore, among the electricity supply companies, MESCOM has made the least increase in FAC. Moreover, the figures are calculated by the companies using their own formulae. Reports stated that this is the second time that power tariffs are being raised by BESCOM since the start of 2017, after 15 paise per unit charge was levied between July 2017 and March 2018. FAC was not levied between April and September this year and will now once again be levied from October to December. Accordingly, BESCOM facilitates electricity supply in eight districts of Karnataka Bangalore Urban, Bangalore Rural, Chikkaballapura, Kolar, Davanagere, Tumkur, Chitradurga, and Ramanagara.
