Gencos seek tariff support from central government to meet new emission control norms

Power generation companies have reportedly sought tariff support from the central government to meet new emission control norms for power plants. It is estimated that retrofitting coal-based power plants with new emission control equipment would entail a cumulative investment of $38 billion by the private sector. This would result in an increase in tariff in the range of Re 0.50 to Rs 1.25 per unit. Gencos including NTPC, Adani Power Limited, GMR Energy and Reliance Power Limited have also sought an extension for  the December 2017 deadline for meeting the emission norms.
