We wish to inform all Laghu Udyog Bharati Members that Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd has filed petition to increase electricity tariff rate to the tune of 17% for FY 2018 – 2019 vide their Public Notice appeared in The Tribune on 02-01-2018 (Copy attached). Regulatory Commission vide their e-mail Dt. 16-01-2018 called the meeting on 18-01-2018 of State Advisory Committee of which Shri Talwar is also a member. Copy of letter and agenda calling meeting on 18-01-2018 is also attached.
We filed objections and suggestions vide my representation of 15 pages Dt. 18-01-2018 (Copy attached). According to me, figures reflected in their APR (Annual Performance Review) for FY 2017 – 2018 and ARR (Annual Revenue Requirement for FY 2018 – 2019 is not true. In fact, according to us, there should not be any increase in tariff during FY 2018 – 2019. However, due to Uday Scheme, Commission will have to increase tariff.
Attached copy of Commercial Circular No. 46 of 2017 Dt. 10-11-2017 issued by PSPCL (Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd) (Distribution License) showing electricity tariff rates and rebates thereupon during FY 2017 – 2018. Kindly download all the attached files, go through the same and send me further suggestions / objections to be offered, which we can raise in the public hearing fixed as per Public Notice for Public Hearing scheduled from 02-02-2018 to 16-02-2018 (Copy attached).
