Power utilities cross deadline for submission of tariff proposals
The power utilities of Telangana have dismissed the threat of State Electricity Regulatory Commission that it will issue power tariff order suo motu since the former have not met the deadline of February 23 for submission of tariff proposals for the coming year.
The distribution companies (Discoms) were supposed to submit the proposals by November 30 to be able to complete the formalities of receiving objections from public, receiving replies from Discoms and finally holding the public hearing in Hyderabad and some other place in Telangana before March 31. But, they sought at least two extensions which the ERC approved. Finally, the ERC served a notice on them that it will close the tariff order suo motu.
