GujaratGujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) has admitted the review petition filed by Surat Citizen Council Trust (SCCT) against increase in electricity tariff by Torrent Power Ltd for its customers in Surat, Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar.

In its order dated June 16, GERC stated that Torrent Power Ltd should not implement any tariff hike till the final judgment on the review petition filed by the SCCT.

The SCCT office-bearers stated that the council had filed the review petition against the order of GERC on March 31, 2015, allowing Torrent Power Ltd to increase tariff.

In its petition, the SCCT alleged that Torrent Power Ltd has raised Rs535.03 crore from its customers in Surat and Rs1,590.20 crore in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar by increasing electricity tariff following the GERC order issued earlier.

The SCCT petition said the tariff hike was implemented from the month of February and March when it had to be from April 1.

The SCCT president Sharad Kapadia told TOI, "GERC has admitted our review petition and ordered Torrent Power Ltd not to implement tariff hike till the final judgment is delivered. We have urged GERC to order the company to repay the illegal charges called 'regulatory charges' collected from customers." The company officials were not available for their comments on the issue.
