He has said that the increase in demand charges from Rs.350 per KVA to Rs.550 KVA is an abnormal hike when compared to most of the States in the country.

SIMA Chairman has appealed to reduce the demand charges, wheeling charges, and transmission charges and consider increasing the night hour rebate on par with peak hour to sustain the global competitiveness of the textile industry in TN and also avoid year-on-year increase with a cap of 6% and make the State as an attractive destination for new investments.
