This subsidy is part of the Atal Griha Jyoti Yojana, which aims to provide affordable electricity to households.

Under this initiative, consumers receive electricity at the rate of one rupee per unit. For the initial 100 units, a flat rate of Rs 100 is applied. The scheme applies to domestic consumers with a maximum consumption of 150 units within 30 days.
