Telangana HC clears way for DISCOMs to buy electricity

  • Posted On: April 26, 2022
Telangana High Court directed the Centre and electricity bodies not to prevent the Telangana DISCOMs to operate through power exchange or through open access if there is default of payments.

In 2021, the Union power ministry made the clause mandatory that in the event of non-maintenance of letters of credit by the DISCOMs, they could not be provided electricity from generators. If any DISCOM defaulted on payment, it could not secure power via open access.
