Honorable Lt Governor,

Sh. Anil Baijal,

New Delhi.


Respected Sir,

I was introduced to IP Power station in 1973, then Engineering Student and worked and Trained at BTPS in 1975, top inventor and Energy Expert – I have not seen such a SCANDALOUS and CORRUPTED Tariff order in my life.  


1.  Domestic Consumers PUNISHED for Energy Efficiency


Sir – Small Domestic Consumers had ACTUALLY reduced their Connected Load by Switching to LED Lamps, Efficient Ceiling Fans, Small 65W Refrigerators, LED or LCD Televisions etc – cut the Connected Load by 50% in last few years.


2.  DERC Didn’t Order REDUCTION of Connected Load For EE.


3.  Fixed Charges Rs.250/Kw for 0.5 Kw – Rs.4/Kw for 25 Kw Load


DERC order is Totally SCANDALOUS – Even for a Connected Load of say 500 W – few LED Lamps, 1-2 Ceiling Fans, A Small 65W Fridge – to pay Rs.125 as Fixed Charges but for 10KW Load in 15KW-25KW pay just Rs.25 per month [Rs.200-175 Per month].


For majority of Consumers [0.5 KW] Fixed Charges could be Rs.250 Per Kilowatt and for large Consumers That Too For 3 PHASE CONNECTIONS Rs.4 Per kilowatt.




5.  DERC didn’t Differentiate between 1 Phase & 3 Phase Consumers


6.  99% of Breakdowns due to 3 Phase Very High Load Consumers.


Breakdown of a Small Consumer is rare is Localized – addressed in Minutes but 3 Phase Consumers Faults Always Leads to TRANSFORMER SHUT DOWN – Long Hours of Service Disruptions, Loss to Discoms and Inconvenience to Hundreds of other consumers.


7.   DERC Order shall CAUSE LARGE VARIATIONS IN DEMAND – High Short Term Purchases of Electricity – High Losses to Consumers.


Please RESCIND This DERC Malicious Tariff Order.
