No electricity tariff hike for those using under 60 units

President Mahinda Rajapaksa

No changes will be made in the electricity tariff for those using up to 60 units, President Mahinda Rajapaksa stated at the the UPFA May Day rally.

The Government Information Department further reported that those using under 180 units will receive relief.

The Public Utilities Commission granted approval to the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to increase electricity tariffs with effect from April 20.

The decision was met with firm protests by opposition politicians and the public alike.
