Karnataka: BESCOM hikes electricity bill by 85p per unit starting December

BESCOM has announced an 85 paise per unit fuel adjustment cost (FAC) for November's electricity consumption, in addition to the previous 50 paise per unit increase. Despite a 0.16 paise reduction from the previous month, this hike is due to increased purchase volume and electricity shortages. Consumers in BESCOM's area will see these costs reflected in December's bills.

The increment in charges is anticipated to impact consumers within BESCOM’s jurisdiction, reflecting the increased costs attributed to fuel adjustments for November’s electricity consumption.
