DERC wants more non-tariff revenue for discoms

New Delhi´s power regulatory body has proposed changes in its regulations to allow discoms, which claim to be under financial stress, to retain a larger share of their non-tariff income.

As per the draft regulations floated by Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC), the power utilities may be allowed to retain up to 60 per cent of the revenue earned from other businesses such as consultancy. Currently, they are allowed to keep 20 per cent of such earnings.

This move by DERC is seen as an attempt to encourage non-tariff income. The city´s power tariff saw no revision last year and is likely to stay untouched this year as well. The AAP government has time and again pulled up the discoms terming their performance as ´atrocious´.
