MoP proposes to ease regulations for open access of power

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has proposed to ease regulations for open access of power for consumers by linking the tariffs with the cost of power, allowing scheduling by the consumer and introducing differential cross-subsidy charges based on the category-wise cost of supply. Under the current open access regime, consumers pay high cross-subsidy charges and additional charges apart from the regular charges to obtain power from other sources which deters open access. Through differential pricing, the move aims to address the issue of uneven scheduling by open access consumers. The proposal is a part of a discussion paper on open access floated by the ministry.
