Dehradun, Mar 19 (PTI) Amid rising inflation, consumers in Uttarakhand will have to shell out more for electricity and water from April 1.

The cost of electricity may increase by up to 12 per cent in the state from April 1. The Uttarakhand Energy Corporation has sent a proposal in this regard to the Electricity Regulatory Commission, which may approve it in its meeting to be held this week. This will affect 27.50 lakh consumers of the state.

Government sources said a 17 per cent increase was proposed in the corporation's proposal, but the commission reduced it to 12 per cent.
