Mumbai-Tata Power is disparagingly SLDC, supports R-Infra
Tata Power has received a major boost as load state of Maharashtra Dispatch Centre (SLDC) rejected the company's offer of 198 Mw addition, instead of the current 360 MW, Reliance infrastructure, to June according to the instructions of the State Government. SLDC makes planning authorities. This is explained by Tata Power, that it would continue to plan a 360 MW to Reliance infrastructure and 100 MW at best to further "the written instruction of the electricity regulatory Commission, Maharashtra (MERC)".
The State Government has asked the MERC to consider cross-subsidization mechanism to avoid cream skimming and protecting the interests of consumers are subsidized. Booth brings relief to consumers SLDC Reliance infrastructure in Mumbai suburbs, as they will be spared the power cuts in this sweltering summer.
Tata Power last week spoke with SLDC that Sunday at midnight he would plan the 100 MW up to 160 MW and Tata power distribution company, while 198 Mw will be supplied to Reliance infrastructure amounting to RP 5.90 per item. The 198 MW to Reliance will be before June, unless the latter accepted the invitation.
Reliance infrastructure has already rejected the proposal and decided to purchase the 198 Mw on the open market, in addition to 650-700 Mw currently attracts the RTS 6.50-7 per unit.
Earlier today, Tata Power wrote SLDC: "it is not necessary for you to wait for any particular order with the MERC for graphics (100 to 160 Mw MW to Tata Power Distribution Company and 198 Mw Reliance infrastructure until June). Accordingly, planning must be done on the basis of the SLDC commissioned by Tata Power and Tata Power Transmission Company. In addition, the Government of Maharashtra has not given any direction of Tata Power to maintain the status quo either. The State Government said that it does not seek to undermine, or interpret any of the provisions of the electricity Act 2003 or the tops of the Court in any form and does not seek to impose any decision on anyone ".
Tata Power sources told Business Standard that would respond to the Government's communication of 14 may, in which the Government stated that no Mumbai power will not be sold from the city while he was in short supply.
A senior government official said: "the Government has not invoked section 11 or 108. This is a response from Tata Power. However, there can be no compromise in the Government's position that Tata Power to sell electricity only license deficits Mumbai at regulated rates. With regard to the timing of 160 MW to Tata Power Distribution Company of Tata Power, the Government has to continue to supply Reliance infrastructure until the end of June. The Government, however, go on to the MERC in this regard ".
