Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has implemented the regulations enabling power developers to obtain transmission corridors for open access in the medium-term. The main objective behind these regulations is to introduce transmission corridors for even those transactions which fall under the category of three months to 25 years. Currently, generating companies have the option of booking power transmission corridors for up to three months (short-term open access) or for more than three years (long-term open access). The regulator had published these regulations earlier in 2010 after year long consultations with stakeholders. The new norm will enable power plants to get transmission facilities just by indicating the region in which the power is to be supplied.
