Import duty waiver will bring down tariff of naphtha based projects

Import duty waiver will bring down tariff of naphtha based projects

The Centre's decision to totally eliminate 10% import duty on naphtha will bring in a partial relief to the India's power sector, which is facing a peaking shortage of 14% and energy shortage of 8%. The elimination of import duty will bring down the price of naphtha, since petroleum products are priced on an import-parity basis, which includes components such as freight and import duty.

NTPC, which has an installed capacity of around 25,000 mw sees the fall in the crude prices to $40 per barrel coupled with the elimination of import duty on naphtha will result in reduction in the per unit tariff by 50 to 55 paise for naphtha-based power projects. On the other hand, GMR, which runs its 220-mw- Mangalore power project on naphtha, hopes the tariff will fall by at least 75 paise.
