Noida: As the temperature is soaring high, the electricity bills for Noidaites might also go up. The UP Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) has given order to all divisions to collect 33 percent extra revenues this year. Now, according to corporation officials it is impossible to collect extra revenues without hiking electricity rates.
This decree has increased the tension of the officials because last year also the consumers had to pay in advance as the corporation had to complete its target. The officials are not confronting but they are also not happy.
Last year Noida had a target of Rs.1600 crore. But, this time the target is of Rs. 2000 crore, which consumers will have to pay from their pockets.
