Citizens filed complaints by calling K Electric’s complaint centers and 118 and started throwing garbage in K Electric’s vehicles in protest.
Citizens under the pressure of inflation say that the electric ones do not provide electricity and are at the forefront in collecting taxes.
An agreement has been reached between K Electric and KMC to collect tax in electricity bills, which has angered the public. A social media campaign to throw garbage in front of K Electric offices against tax collection is gaining momentum.
According to the agreement, a municipal tax of Rs.50 will be levied on the use of 200 units and Rs.150 on 200 to 700 units. Those who use more than 700 units will have to pay a monthly tax of Rs.200.
Commercial and industrial users will have to pay 200 rupees per month in the form of municipal tax.
A total of 24 lakh consumers of the city will be charged municipal tax.
