CERC issues discussion paper on the Methodology for Compilation of Coal Price Index

The CERC has issued a draft discussion paper on the Methodology for Compilation of Coal Price Index Applicable for the Power Sector. In response to it, various stakeholders (power producers, mainly Case 1 bidders) filed petitions and made representations seeking a revision in the existing methodology of computing the escalation rate for domestic coal as the existing methodology does not capture the price movements of non-coking coal. The regulator has therefore proposed a change in the index used for computing the escalation rate for non-coking coal prices. The commission has invited comments on the paper by May 20, 2019.
