The people living in Delhi are given the benefit of free electricity. For this the government also gives subsidy. The Delhi government had started the free electricity scheme in 2019. Under this scheme, people of Delhi get 100% subsidy on electricity less than 200 units every month. This means that if a person consumes up to 200 units of electricity in a month, then he will not have to pay a single rupee bill. Similarly, 50 percent subsidy (up to Rs 800) is given to people consuming up to 400 units of electricity in a month.
