As Delhi swelters in the humid monsoon, its residents are in for another joltโ€”this time from their electricity bills. From July onwards, the power tariff is set to increase. Though the new tariff hasn’t been officially declared, the Power Purchase Adjustment Cost (PPAC) has surged.

๐Ÿ’ธ Increased Power Bills: Consumers in Delhi will see an increase in their electricity bills by 6.15% to 8.75%.

Breakdown of PPAC Increase:

  • BSES Yamuna Power (BYPL): 6.15%
  • BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited (TPDDL), New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC): 8.75%

๐Ÿ”Œ Impact on Low Usage Consumers: Consumers using up to 200 units per month will continue to receive free electricity, unaffected by this increase.

๐Ÿ™๏ธ NDMC Residents Hit the Hardest:

While electricity costs are rising across Delhi, NDMC area residents will bear the highest burden. The NDMC will collect a total of 47.5% PPAC from its consumers monthly. Following closely are:

  • TPDDL: 46.63%
  • BRPL: 44.58%
  • BYPL: 43.9%

๐Ÿ“Š Current and New PPAC Rates:

Company Current PPAC (%) New PPAC (%) Increase (%)
BRPL 35.83 44.58 8.75
BYPL 37.75 43.9 6.15
TPDDL 37.88 46.63 8.75
NDMC 38.75 47.5 8.75

๐Ÿ“ˆ What is PPAC?

The PPAC allows power distribution companies (discoms) to recover the cost difference when fuel prices rise. Discoms buy electricity at higher rates from producers but sell it at regulated rates to consumers. To offset this loss, PPAC is levied on consumers.

According to discoms, the Ministry of Power’s directive from November 9, 2021, mandates regulatory commissions in all states to allow discoms to recover PPAC without application whenever electricity prices rise. This system has been in place in Delhi since 2012.
