TALKING POINT with Atul Goel: Can an RWA influence the change in power subsidy?
The recent change in tariffs by Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has thrown open a debate on who this move actually serves. Is it the consumers of electricity or is it the electricity board, and by extension the government?
Many residents are of the opinion that despite lowering the tariffs, the increase in fixed charges will make a consumer end up paying more. But can they do anything about it?
How effective is an RWA when it comes to raising resident concerns in front of authorities?
City Spidey gets chatting with Atul Goel, president of URJA (United RWAs Joint Action), on the hidden layers to the recent electricity subsidy and what RWAs can do about it.
