The price of energy-efficient fans distributed under the government’s Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) scheme has been revised. This is owing to reduction of the Goods & Services Tax (GST) slab for fans from 28% to 18%. The BEE 5-star rated fans will now be available at Rs 1,110 only, according to Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), the power-PSUs-promoted company that implements the programme, in a statement.
Under UJALA, the fans being are of 50 watts, which are 30% more efficient than the fans available in the retail market. They come with a 2.5 year technical warranty, it added.
