Power at half price: You're fine, till you switch on the AC...
The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi has slashed power tariff by half and ordered supply of free water, in prompt fulfilment of two of the party’s key election promises. The electricity will be available to consumers using 400 units or less at half the charge and the new rates will start on March 1.
Here’s what it means for the consumers:

If you consume exactly 200 units, then the new tariff will be:
Without subsidy: Rs 907.20

With new subsidy: Rs 475.20
If you consume 400 units:
Without subsidy: Rs 2,192.40
