Give a missed call to get an electricity subsidy! Delhi Government will soon issue a phone number


Delhi residents will now be able to make a missed call to register for electricity subsidy in the nation’s capital. According to the ANI news agency, the Delhi government is ready to issue a special telephone number to enable its residents to easily opt for the electricity subsidy.

The decision was taken at a key meeting on Saturday chaired by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who holds the electricity portfolio, along with other senior officials in the department, the DISCOMs (electricity distribution companies ) and other relevant departments.

According to ANI reports, the agenda of the meeting was to simplify the process of activating and deactivating the energy subsidy offered by the Delhi government. Sisodia ordered officials to simplify the process for consumers so that every citizen can enjoy its benefits with their own choice. He said the registration process should be easy for them so that they don’t need to go through a lengthy process. Hence, it has been decided by the Deputy CM that the Delhi government will issue a subsidized phone line.

During the meeting, he said Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his government in Delhi are always striving to ensure that its services and benefits reach all citizens of the nation’s capital.

“CM Kejriwal had earlier announced that the electricity subsidy would now be regulated on a voluntary basis. Since then, the government has been committed to simplifying access to governance and bringing in new era reforms in its services,” Sisodia said.

How to register for the electricity subsidy via the telephone line?

Follow these two steps to register your electricity subsidy choice in Delhi:

1) Drop a missed call on the given number or send a Whatsapp message on it.

2) From now on, all invoices will carry a QR code. Consumers can scan to register their choice.

Apart from this, consumers will also have a walk-in option where they can visit the DISCOM center and register their choice for the subsidy.

Earlier in May this year, CM Arvind Kejriwal announced that Delhi residents would continue to enjoy free electricity while advising that consumers who wish to opt out of the subsidy can do so from October 1.
