The Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution (MERC) has not ordered any tariff hike during 2007-08. The consumers have been facing a daily load shedding upto 15 hours due to burgeoning demand supply gas which stands at around 5,700 mw. MERC has introduced a new consumption slab in the existing LT-1 (domestic) category, for consumers consuming above 500 units per month.
