Delhi discoms seek progressive tariff rationalisation

Private discoms in Delhi, BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL), BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited(TPDDL), have proposed to the state regulator, Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) that there should be a cost reflective, progressive tariff rationalisation as their combined standalone revenue gap in 2019-20 stood at around Rs 30 billion.

The discoms have filed their separate petitions for truing-up up to 2019-20 and aggregate revenue requirement (ARR) and tariff for 2021-22, ahead of tariff rationalisation by the DERC in 2020-21. As per the petitions, the standalone revenue gap for 2019-20 has been computed to be around Rs 29.68 billion including Rs 15.65 billion of BRPL, Rs 60.9 million of BYPL and Rs 7.94 billion of TPDDL. Their accumulated revenue gap of the discoms has reached over Rs 500 billion as on March 31, 2020, which  includes Rs 286.23 billion of BRPL, Rs 192.13 billion of BYPL, and Rs 38.10 billion of TPDDL. The commission has sought comments and suggestions from consumers and other stakeholders on the petitions by March 26, 2021.
