Supreme Court directs all SERCs to frame norms for fixing tariff

The Supreme Court has directed all state electricity regulatory commissions (SERCs) to frame regulations under section 181 of the Electricity Act on the terms and conditions for determination of power tariff within a period of three months.

The direction came in a verdict by which the court dismissed the appeal of Tata Power Company Limited- Transmission against a judgment of the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity (APTEL) which had upheld the grant of electricity transmission license to Adani Electricity Mumbai Infra Limited (AEMIL). While framing these guidelines on determination of tariff, the appropriate Commission shall be guided by the principles prescribed in Section 61, which also includes the National Electricity Policy and National Tariff Policy, 2006.
