The distribution of the tube light at a subsidized rate will be done through the different marketing channels and mainly through the discoms. So basically a single LED tube light that originally cost Rs.700 to Rs.800 will be given at discounted price Rs.230. The LED tube lights will be distributed at one third of the market price.
