The West Bengal government hinted at a reduction in power tariff in the next 2-3 years, following new captive block regulations. ¨We have got six captive blocks. We think we will be able to get coal at lower cost than before. With this, there is a possibility that power tariff may get lower in the next 2-3 years,¨ Manish Gupta, State Power Minister, said. He was referring to the Bengal region, except Kolkata and Howrah.
