DERCIn wake of frequent power cuts and power outages, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) took out a notification on 30-05-2016 addressing power companies to compensate consumers for outages extending up to two hours.

The default period will be considered from the time someone registers a complaint till the time supply is restored.

The compensation amount can range from Rs 25 to Rs 100 per hour and the Delhi Electricity Supply Code and Performance Standard regulations will become effective immediately, the notification read.

Following this, Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday issued a warning to distribution companies to improve power supply within six months or end up paying consumers on hourly basis of outage.

"For now, we have asked discoms to compensate consumers for unscheduled power cuts extending up to two hours. But after six months, if there is no improvement in their power supply network, government will bring it down to one hour," he said.

In his warning, Kejriwal said that the companies will be held "accountable" even if there is outage for an hour and so that Delhiites will benefit from the privatisation of the power sector.
