Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asks residents to apply for free power subsidy by September 30
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday asked the city’s residents to apply for the subsidy for electricity by September 30 if they want to enjoy the free electricity service by his government. He also announced that those who will not apply for the scheme, will not be able to avail the benefits.
During a media briefing today, the Delhi CM in a statement said that in the past, there was a section of people who asked the government to not impose the subsidy forcefully on them forcefully as they can pay their bills. To this, Kejriwal said that his government recently decided to make a slight change in the scheme under which the benefits will be given only to those who apply for it. Those who do not fill out the form for power subsidy, will not be able to enjoy the benefits from October 1 onwards, Kejriwal added.
