SC issues notice to Sasan Power

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to Sasan Power Limited (SPL) to stay APTEL’s judgment that allowed compensation claims owing to “change in law” of the PPA. SPL operates the 3,960 MW Sasan ultra mega power project in Madhya Pradesh. In November 2018, APTEL had set aside the CERC’s order, which disallowed SPL’s claims seeking compensation for issues like changes in law during the construction of the power plant among others. APTEL had asked the CERC to either direct the states/discoms to pay compensation or allow it to raise tariffs. The Supreme Court’s intervention came after a plea was filed by the power offtakers including the Haryana Power Purchase Centre, Ajmer Vidyut Vitran Nigam Limited, the Madhya Pradesh Power Management Company, and Punjab State Power Corporation Limited against APTEL’s order.
