The Union Electricity Board (Amendment) Bill, 2010 amended by the Union Government to reverse the federal structure of the country and create a serious crisis in the central government relations, he said. Money requested by the state electricity minister

Amendments introduced in the Amendment Act, enacted in 2014 to amend the laws of power, is mandatory for states to split the distribution scope and make it mandatory for the companies to supply distribution supplies. But the suggestions that have been brought together will have a huge impact on the society. The requirement for avoiding cross-subsidy in three years is to make at least two times the rate of electricity consumption per State in the State. In other states, the situation will not be different when the households in the country have access to power. The economically weaker sections will have no power to afford electricity.

Forcing the national tariff policy to compel the states to increase the tariff increase. The condition that the state government has to give the bank directly to the bank account without declaring the bill for those with special assistance is not practiced by the pathetic state of the state. The letter reminds us that the regulation of cross subsidy was not in place in the 2003 law and was amended in 2007.

The amendment is a move to centralize the powers of the states in the power sector in the central government. The amendment to the powers of the States is to shift the power to appoint state power regulatory commissions and deciding on how intermediary companies act. In this context, the States need to intervene to make the necessary amendments to the Electricity Amendment Bill. The state governments will be able to bring about a change in this regard if asked. Mm Money in the letter expresses hope. (A copy of the letter is included.)
