AGGREGATE REVENUE REQUIERMENT AND TARIFF REVISION PROPOSAL
For distribution and retail sale of Electricity in Union Territory of Puducherry

Filing of Aggregate Revenue Requirement (ARR) and Tariff Revision Proposal for the year 2009-10
before the Hon'ble Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission


The tariff for retail sale of power to various category of consumers within the Union Territory of Puducherry was lastly fixed during 2002-2003 by the Government of Puducherry. With the enactment of the new "Electricity Act 2003" by the Parliament in the year 2003, the Central/State/Joint Electricity Regulatory Commissions have been vested with the powers to determine and fix the tariff for retail sale of power within the area of operation of a licensee. Though the new act was enforced through out the country including the Union Territory of Puducherry with effect from 6th June 2003, the power to setup State Electricity Regulatory Commission in the Union Territory of Puducherry was withheld by the Government of India. In the absence of an Electricity Regulatory Commission, revision of tariff for retail sale to various category of consumers with in the Union Territory of Puducherry couldn't be undertaken by the Government of Puducherry.

In the meanwhile, during the year 2006-07, the Government of India had notified the constitution of a Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) for the state of Goa and the Union Territories including the Union Territory of Puducherry with headquarters at Gurgaon, Haryana State. The Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission was made functional during 2008-09. Thereafter, the Electricity Department, Government of Puducherry had initiated steps to file a tariff revision petition before the Hon'ble Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission and the first petition was filed before the Hon'ble Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission during January 2009.
