The agricultural consumers of MSEDCL will pay 20 paisa more per unit. The state-owned company had asked for R34,000 crore revenue hike for the current year, but MERC cut the demand by R14,000 crore, giving much-wanted relief to two crore consumers from Kanjurmarg and beyond, in the rest of Maharashtra.
