Hits smaller text tool iconmedium text tool iconlarger text tool icon

Supreme courtThe Supreme Court has asked the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission to approach the Karnataka High Court in a matter related to giving open access to power producers to sell electricity outside Karnataka. A Bench headed by Justice S B Sinha, while refusing to intervene in the High Court's interim order, asked the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission to seek a vacation of the stay order of the High Court, which is hearing a similar petition filed by G MR Energy.

The High Court said that the CERC's petition would be heard along with GMR's plea. The CERC in its petition said that the Karnataka government had unilaterally arrogated to itself the powers to fix tariffs for electricity sold by generating companies, ev en though only state electricity commissions have such tariff determination powers.

The state government had on December 17 and 30 last year passed orders directing all state generating companies, including co-generation sugar plants, to maximise their exportable power and supply power to the state grid.The CERC had challenged the High Court order that stayed its (CERC's) directions issued on January 22 this year.
