Urban Punjabis Want Immediate Relief on Electricity and Petrol

Citizens of Jalandhar are discussing the sops being offered to lure urban  votes on the eve of Punjab Assembly elections.

Urban Punjabis Want


Immediate abolition of " Commercial category " connection category . This they find both exploitative as well as humiliating. Even Urban business men have a right to earn their livelihoods.

End of cross subsidies

End Electricity Tax and Octroi ( Choongi ) on Electricity


The price of petrol should be reduced to the price prevailing in the neighboring state of Haryana ( where it is nearly Rs. 7 cheaper per litre ) . Petrol in both states is sourced from same set of refineries.


Exemption of small cars ( like Maruti 800 and Nano ) from Toll Taxes on Toll Plazas.

Physically Handicapped Punjabis should , also , be given Free Electricity and , also Free Petrol ( as cars for them are not a luxury but a necessity )
