Government asks CERC to relieve power plants delayed due to force majeure from transmission charges

The government has reportedly asked the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) to make changes in regulations that will free power plants which are delayed due to justifiable reasons from paying penalties to associated transmission projects. …

The penalties would be borne equally by all beneficiary discoms of a generation project, as per the directions issued by the union power ministry to the CERC. As per the directions, the penalties shall be equitable; and shall not extend to compensating either the generation companies for power it could not despatch because of delay in transmission or to compensate the transmission company for the delay in generation or the associated transmission.
