No plans for electricity price hike

Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Chairman Janaka Ratnayake said that Cabinet Ministers are not authorized to  increase electricity tariffs and that the any tariff hike on electricity should be  made by the  PUCSL

No decision has been taken for an electricity tariff hike, as news articles circulating regarding cabinet approval are insufficient to cover the loss of the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), said.

He said that several media reports had reported that the Cabinet had approved an increase in the electricity tariffs in two steps, in January and June 2023.
