Andhra Pradesh discoms to files affidavit on dues to RE generators

The Andhra Pradesh high court has directed discoms to file an affidavit on the objections raised by the renewable energy (RE) generating companies regarding pending payments, before June 28, 2021.

In March 2021, the high court had directed the Southern Power Distribution Company Limited and Eastern Power Distribution Company Limited to file an affidavit by March 31, 2021 with information on their dues to the RE generations and when they intend to clear them. The discoms had claimed that payments per the court orders had been made up to December 31, 2020 whereas the generators claimed that the order was not completely complied with, and some deductions were made without specifying the reason.
