Its Tata bye-bye to threat of power cuts in Mumbai's suburbs
Ninad Siddhaye / DNAMonday, May 17, 2010 23:34 IST

Mumbai: In a development which will surely make Mumbais suburbanites smile, the Tata Power Company (TPC) on Monday offered to continue providing 200MW electricity at regulated rates to Reliance Infrastructure till June 30.

TPC has also offered to take over 4,00,000 RInfra consumers who use less than 100 units, thus taking the burden of 200MW off RInfra. This offer was made in response to a letter written on May 14 by the state energy secretary to TPC asking it to keep in mind the larger interests of Mumbai suburban consumers.

On Friday, the state government had sent a warning of sorts to TPC after it said it would withdraw supply of 360MW to Reliance Infrastructure (RInfra) unless the latter purchased 200MW at a high rate of Rs5.90 per unit,

On Monday, TPC sounded unhappy about the deal. We are disappointed to note that we have to maintain a status quo on supply of 360MW to RInfra. The decision continues to ignore the needs of our consumers who have switched over from RInfra. It is preferential to one set of Mumbai consumers against the other and is supporting an inefficient distributor, said a written statement by TPC.

TPC directors S Padmanabhan and S Ramakrishnan said that though TPCs consumer base was growing, and more and more RInfra consumers were switching to TPC, it has decided to send its offer to the state government as well as Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (Merc) keeping the larger interests of the consumer in mind.

Although out of the 360MW that Tata is giving to RInfra till date, Tata Power would need 160 MW to give to its own consumer base (which has been growing by leaps and bounds after it started giving electricity to retail consumers) so that they are not inconvenienced. The State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC) has been requested to schedule the same.

From July 1, TPC has offered to take over 4,00,000 consumers from RInfra in order to utilise 200MW of power. This will significantly reduce the tariff for low-end consumers and also reduce the tariff burden on RInfra customers, said the directors on Monday. They added that these consumers would be the lowest end and would be charged at Rs1.30 per unit; while they pay a wheeling charge of Rs0.37 per unit to RInfra.

Till the time Merc comes up with an amicable solution to the power crisis, the electricity demand is likely to go down due to the arrival of the monsoon. All TPC proposals are subject to clearance by Merc. RInfra spokesperson said the company would comment only after studying the proposals.

Bahya Delhi gawah hai, how reliance can screw you... after privatization of electricity board half of Delhi went to Tatas and Half to Reliance... While Tata consumers suffered a bit too, Reliance consumers got totally totalled... not only high tarriffs but faster meters and on top of that reliance claims damages from Delhi govt on account of electricity theft.

presently the roles are as good as reversed.
tata steel bought corus, i think 6 times bigger than tisco, under what was called a "strategic long term plan". But the reality was to survive in world market after from arcelor-mittal merger. Land-Rover & Jaguar acquisition was a similar 'strategic move'. Both these deals could be closed only by TCS' equity offloading which is probably the only gem in tata's crown today. Telco would likely not have survived had it not been for indica. Nano is not profitable either. Lately Tata is biting more than it could chew. Ambani's dont do that. They have hands on the the most promising of them all, oil&gas. Other bizness is just diversification. Gangu ab Bhoj ho gaya hai aur Bhoj, Gangu
