Orissa - Power tariff likely to increase

Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon
Supreme CourtThe Supreme Court on 09-11-2011 rejected a review petition of the Orissa Electricity Regulation Commission (OERC) fuelling speculation that power tariff will soon rise for lakhs of domestic and commercial consumers in the state and fall for industries. The apex court while turning down the OERC petition directed it to implement the new tariff provision as directed by the Appellate Tribunal, official sources said here.

The row over tariff rates for different categories of consumers had been going on for quite some time. The matter was taken to the high court and then to the Tribunal. The Tribunal did not support the OERC method of calculating the tariff and directed it to redo the cost of supply on voltage basis.

The OERC moved the Tribunal with a review petition. Even as the petition was pending disposal, one industry went to the Supreme Court which upheld the Tribunal decision.

"We apprehend the apex court order will add heavy burden on the domestic consumers, increasing the per unit tariff by more than Rs one. We have not yet seen the judgment copy," said a senior energy department official.
