Domestic and Religious Purpose Tariffs 

The present electricity tariff for Domestic and Religious Premises customers is such that the charge for electricity depends not only on the number of units (kWh) consumed but also on the rate of consumption. In other words, charge for a number of units consumed over a period of 10 days will be higher than the charge for the same number of units if consumed over a period of 20 days. That is why the tariff is having blocks of units with different unit rates. 

The present tariff has energy unit blocks of 30, 60, 90, 120 and so on. These are defined for a 30day billing period. This means that the first block of 30 units will become 28 units or 32 units if the meter readings are taken in 28 days or 32 days respectively. Other blocks will also change similarly. So, if you have consumed 30 units in 28 days, then 28 units are billed at the first block rate (lowest rate) and the balance 2 units are billed at the second block rate (higher rate) whereas, if you have consumed 30 units in 30 days or longer, all 30 units will be billed at the first block (lowest) rate. 

Following are some examples how your bill is computed
