Complying with the High Court order, Bangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) issued on Monday a public notice on its website on the reduced gas price for household consumers.
The notice said the household consumers will pay monthly bill of Tk 750 for a single-burner oven and Tk 800 for a double-burner one while Tk 9.10 per cubic metre will be charged for metre-based consumers.
But the increased bills which were paid by the household consumers in June and July will not be refunded, it said.
The notice also mentioned that the other consumers like power, captive power, industries, tea garden, fertiliser, commercial and CNG consumers will have to pay gas bills as per the rates fixed by the BERC through its public notice issued on February 23, 2017.
The High Court declared illegal on Sunday the gas price hike for household use in the 2nd phase that came into effect on June 01 last.
The consumers had to pay Tk 900 and Tk 950 for single and double burners respectively from June 1 as per fresh hike in gas price.
