Gruha Jyothi Scheme Karnataka How to Register for Free Electricity Upto 200 Units

CM Siddaramaiah has announced the implementation of Free Electricity for up to 200 units for households in Karnataka. A scheme named Gruha Jyoti or Griha Jyoti is announced regarding the same.

The Karnataka government on Monday issued an order to implement the ‘Gruha Jyoti’ scheme. This scheme guarantees to offer up to 200 units of electricity free of cost to domestic consumers, from July 1 in the state.

Structure of Gruha Jyoti/ Griha Jyothi Scheme

Under the Gruha Jyoti scheme, the Karnataka government will take into account the one-year average power consumption in the 2022-23 financial year and will give free electricity up to 10 per cent more than the average usage.

Let’s understand it more by the example. If a consumer uses about 150 units of electricity a month on average, he can get free power, up to 165 units of power. If he exceeds the limit, then he will have to pay for the rest of the units consumed, which will be the net power consumption.

However, if the usage exceeds 200 units of power, the consumer will have to pay the full amount of the electricity bill. Consumers have to pay the arrears by June 30 within three months.
