As the Aadhaar card is a unique universal identity accepted across the country, hence Tamil Nadu Electricity Board has made it mandatory to link your Aadaar card with the service number. If it is not linked domestic consumers will not be eligible to pay their electricity bills which can also lead to the discontinuation of electricity without any further notice as well as customers will not be able to take advantage of the subsidy.
The subsidy gives 100 units of free energy and also provides a 50% of exemption to consumers whose energy consumption is less than 500 units. Though the linking is only provided for Domestic, Handloom, Power loom, Agriculture and Hut service consumers.
