Gruha Jyothi Scheme Benefits

Zero Electricity Bill : Under the Gruha Jyothi Scheme, residents of Karnataka state can enjoy free electricity of up to 200 units starting from July 2023, leading to a monthly zero electricity bill.

APL & BPL Cards : Regardless of family income, ration card type, religion, and caste, all residents are equally eligible to receive free electricity, limited to up to 200 units under the Gruha Jyothi Scheme.

Gruha Jyothi Scheme 2024 Average Electricity Consumption Calculation (Revised)

As mentioned earlier, residents can consume electricity of up to 200 units, implying that not everyone can use the entire 200 units for free. The eligible units for each electricity meter will be calculated by determining the average monthly electricity units consumed over the last 12 months, and then an additional 10 units will be added. This total represents the maximum units that residents can consume to qualify for a zero electricity bill.

Now, let’s see an example to understand precisely how the government of Karnataka calculates the Average Electricity Consumption.

Average units consumed : (95+88+112+185+62+135+156+99+166+175+152+180) / 12 = 133.75 Units (Avg)

Maximum units (consumable to get zero electricty bill) : (133.75 + 10) = 143.75 Units (Max)

    • The option to cancel the Gruhajyothi application was supposed to be available in the last week of March, but it appears that the concerned department is still working on it. We will update you once the option becomes available.

  1. Aadhaar has been linked , still scheme is not applied , total 220 units has been consumed. what is the issue
    can some one explain if you any inputs?

  2. I have the scheme activated and eligible for 149units. but my april minth consumption has gone beyond 200 units, so looks like I’m not eligible for any rebate if the bill consumption for the month exceeds 200 units.
