The revisions on electricity tariffs will be declared next Tuesday (09), said Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Janaka Ratnayake speaking to media this morning (07).
“The increase of electricity bills is to be announced next Tuesday. Accordingly, by next week we can inform consumers and the public how the electricity bill will increase. We made a request to the Treasury to see if they would provide subsidies to low-income families during the revisions, but we did not receive a good response. Nevertheless, we will be presenting necessary provisions to avoid that situation in the revision of the electricity bills,” he said.
