Alert Tata Power Consumers !!! Please raise objection with MERC [Mah Electricity Regulatory Comm] before 5th April 2013

31 March 2013 No Comment

Please raise objection with MERC [Mah Electricity Regulatory Comm] before 5th April 2013 – Tata Power energy charges are low right from the begining, but extra charges by way of Cross Subsidy Surcharge, Regulatory Asset Recovery and Increase in Wheeling Charges supposed to be paid to Rinfra will subsequently increase the Electricity bill amount

Enclosed is the format for the mail or letter to be sent to MERC to oppose these charges.

THE CHAIRMAN,

MERC [Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission],

World Trade Center, Center No.1,

13th Floor, Cuffe Parade,

Colaba, Mumbai – 400 005..

Telephone No. : 091-22-2216 3964/65/69 , Fax : 091-22-2216 3976

Sub: R Infra MYT Tariff

Dear Sir,

 

I, the undersigned highly appreciate MERC for issuing historical order on 15thOctober 2009 giving consumer option of choosing supply of utility. This resulted into substantial savings by changing from R-Infra to Tata Power. I am now consumer of Tata Power since 2010 (Consumer No 2………) enjoying Tata Power tariff.

 

I understand that R-Infra has submitted MYT proposal to MERC wherein they have asked for increase in Cross Subsidy Surcharge, Regulatory Asset Recovery and Increase in Wheeling Charges, which is highly objectionable. In this competitive scenario, once own inefficiencies should not be passed on to the consumers. In spite of reduction in power purchase cost, RInfra is not reducing their tariff but proposing hike in the above mentioned three components.

 

I hereby request MERC to study this proposal thoroughly and do not allow such increase in  i) Wheeling Charges, ii) Cross Subsidy Surcharge & iii) Regulatory Asset Charge. To maintain healthy competition, Changeover from one utility to another utility should be allowed without any restrictions; otherwise, allow us to be on direct wires of Tata Power.

 

Thanking you I remain,

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Editor
