There is a possibility for electricity charges to be increased by 500% as per a proposal by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB), State Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said.

Addressing an event in Anamaduwa, he said, according to sources, the CEB is considering increasing electricity charges.

“The public will have to sit and look at the various bulbs and fans in their houses and not use them. The country has fallen into such a situation,” he said.
