Delhi: Private power discoms push for fresh tariff hike
Delhi’s private power discoms are again pushing for a fresh tariff hike.
The petition filed by the three private power distribution companies has shown a revenue gap of almost Rs 2200 crore in last financial year in total.
The separate petitions by these three companies have been already submitted to Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC).
Although Delhi’s power regulator has not accepted these petitions as of now. But in case the petitions will be accepted then Delhi power consumers might have to cough out additional 10 to 15 percent as the increased power bill.
The three distribution firms – BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL), BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDPL) – have reportedly submitted their petitions related to annual power tarrifs for 2016-17 earlier this month.
Although the companies have not asked for any specific hike in power tariff but if the revenue gap in the Annual Revenue Receipt (ARR) will be accepted then the hike will be necessary.
