High-end domestic /upper-class families who consume more than 500 units will be charged an additional amount of Rs.1000.
In fact, the fixed charges have been hiked around 22-53% for domestic customers and around 200% for industrial consumers.

The upper-class tariff has been charged telescopically, which means for the first 50 units it will be charged at 3.15 per unit and for second units from 51-100 will be charged at 3.95 per unit. Each unit beyond 250 units will be charged with non-telescopic charges.
