CFL at normal bulb prices for BPL families

Press Trust Of India  |  New Delhi 

The government would make energy efficient available at the cost of normal bulbs for households by the end of next month, a official said today.
"We are in the process of finalising the pricing mechanism that would be out by next week. We hope to implement the initiative by July-end," Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) director said
The power ministry had made a proposal in this regard last month and BEE was entrusted with the task of fixing a price mechanism in consultation with other stake-holders, Mathur said.
He added that the government is not planning to give any subsidy for this perpose.
The bureau would start the programme in only "some localities" and would implement it in the whole nation in phases, he said.
