Supreme Court upholds Karnataka order on power tariffApril 13th, 2009 - 7:26 pm ICT by IANS
Bangalore, April 13 (IANS) The Supreme Court Monday upheld the Karnataka government order, directing power producers such as GMR Energy to supply electricity to the state grid at Rs.5.50 per unit as fixed January 1, an official said.
“The apex court dismissed a special leave petition (SLP) filed by GMR Energy challenging the tariff order, which was issued to ensure all power producers supply power to the state grid to ease the acute power shortage in the state,” state energy department principal secretary K. Jairaj said in a statement.
A division bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice Ashok Kumar Ganguli declined to admit GMR’s petition and extend the interim order.
Earlier, the Karnataka High Court March 18 declined to interfere with the tariff fixed by the Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC).
