NLC India passes benefit of lower tariff to consumers
Through its technical expertise and efficient mining operation combined with Prudent Cost Management, NLC India has been able to reduce its Lignite Transfer Price for captive use by around Rs.300/Ton this financial year leading to lowering of Power Tariff ranging from Rs.0.35 to Rs.0.58 per Kwhr of electricity from its power plants with effect from April/May 2018.
On account of above reduction in transfer price, around Rs.683 crore will be passed on by NLC India to the beneficiary Power Distributing Companies in southern region.
In addition to the above, earlier with major reforms coming through Government initiatives of GST roll out with effect from 01 July 2017, NLC India , as a power generator using lignite from its own mines in the same state passed on the benefit coming from the non-applicability of compensatory cess which resulted in reduction of Power Tariff ranging from Rs.0.45 to Rs.0.75 per Kwhr based on primary fuel consumption in its various power plants. That time around Rs.631 crore benefit (for nine months) was passed on to user Discoms in southern states as well as in Rajasthan.
