Mumbai: BMC is getting a big blow, opposition’s attack on electricity bill, know the whole matter

BMC Electricity Bill: BMC has to bear the burden of lighting installed at various places on the occasion of G-20 committee in Mumbai and to beautify Mumbai. Due to the lights installed to brighten Mumbai, the electricity bill of every ward has increased by 12 to 15 percent. Attacking the government, the opposition is terming the burden on BMC as loot of public money.

Samajwadi Party MLA Raees Sheikh has alleged that not only the electricity bill but also the lights installed are breaking at many places. Now the cost of getting these lights fixed is also coming separately to BMC. Let’s look at the increased electricity bill.

How the electricity bill has increased through the lightings installed to illuminate Mumbai. Let’s try to understand it. You will get an idea of ​​this from last month’s electricity bill of a ward.

Street and garden lighting bills

  • Oct 2022 – 7378358
  • Nov 2022 – 7516621
  • Let’s look at the bills since the time lighting was installed in Mumbai
  • Dec 2022- 75,43,644
  • January 2023 – 1,51,88,446
  • Feb 2023 – 75,97,750

Due to the lighting used to beautify Mumbai, there has been an increase of 12 to 15 percent in the electricity bill, but due to this lighting, the problems faced by the drivers are different. The question is whether these lights installed during the coming monsoon will remain on the electric pole in the same way. The opposition alleges that complaints of breakage of light wires are already being received from many places. In such a situation, the question is whether the expenditure of crores of rupees in the name of beautifying Mumbai for a few months is justified? This is also a question arising now.
