Chandra Kumar said that Himachal has 7.19 per cent rights in Chandigarh and the state is demanding it. He said – like BBMB Vyas project, BBMB project. We had also claimed that we should get twelve percent free electricity. We have also attested this point in the Supreme Court.
But the ratio proportion that we have is 7.19 percent Share which is one eleven seven to eleven approximately five hundred tier point eleven crores becomes ours and that is above the rate of BKS. This BKS rate which was without thermal transfer which was our project, claim should be processed on that. We should be given the claim which is above that rate.
