    Energy Minister G Jagadish Reddy stated that the government in Telangana is planning to privatize the power sector. The government’s decision to assign private companies the responsibility of collecting power bills is part of this plan.

    During a press conference, Reddy mentioned that Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy is considering giving the task of collecting electricity bills to Adani, not just in the Old City as a pilot project, but across the entire state. He expressed concern that this move could lead to the end of electricity subsidies and free power for farmers in Telangana.

He also pointed out discrepancies in the government’s promise of providing free electricity for up to 200 units, noting that many households in the Old City fall below this threshold.
