According to the order issued by the Energy Department of Chhattisgarh, 24 percent rebate in energy charges payable to rolling mills has been provided on the amount of electricity consumed during the period from July 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. Due to this, advance payment will be made by the state government to reimburse the loss to the Chhattisgarh State Electricity Distribution Company.
