Tata Power, R-Infra differ on power tariff
Tata Power consumers can expect an average six per cent reduction in their power rates. However, Reliance Infrastructure (R-Infra) consumers might be dismayed, as the company has sought an average 18 per cent rise in power rates. Both Tata Power and R-Infra distribution companies have said they have given their mid-term review (MTR) proposals for 2015-16 to the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC), which is expected to take a call by end of April or in May.
Tata Power has estimated an average power purchase cost of about Rs 4.25 per unit, excluding transmission and standby charges, for 2015-16. For R-Infra, it is expected to be about Rs 4.30 per unit for the same year.
