Shri Vilas Gupta, Regional Chairman EPCES-Noida SEZ said “Since, the electricity was not in use in the month of April 2020 and May 2020, we were receiving request from the units to make a request to Uttar Pradesh Government to allow waiver of fixed charge for 3 months, because of the slowdown in businesses due to nationwide lockdown”. Accordingly, EPCES made a request to the Government of Uttar Pradesh for giving relief.
The commercial and industrial units of Uttar Pradesh got a big relief from Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Ltd. (UPPCL) by way of waiver of one month fixed charge on electricity bill on a request made by Export Promotion Council for EOUs & SEZs (“EPCES”) which is an Apex body, setup by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry. The relief has been provided on the conditions that units should clear all their past dues up to 30 June 2020.

Shri Vilas Gupta further said “EPCES thanks UPPCL for wavier of one month fixed charge and further requests to consider the waiver for 3 months to provide relief to the industry in this pandemic situation. As the situation improves, UPPCL may take appropriate measures to square off this waiver. It is a time to support the call made by our Hon’ble Prime Minister “Atmanirbhar Bharat”
