Power tariff hike is inevitable: Krishnankutty

Minister for Power K. Krishnankutty said here on Sunday that an increase in power tariff had become unavoidable in the State. However, he said that the increase demanded by the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) would not be implemented as such.

The Minister said that the government would try its best to minimise the burden on the people while considering the power tariff increase.
