During the course of hearing the representative of PSTCL and PSPCL submitted that due to cash crunch PSPCL was not in a position to make lump-sum payment. PSPCL committed that they will make weekly payment of Rs.11 crore and will clear all the bills by March 31 2013.
CERC was however, constrained to note that PSPCL is not paying attention to payments it deserved. PDSPCL was over drawing power from grid at the cost of other constituents. It is obligatory on the part of PSPCL to make payment for consuming power which legitimately belonged to other constituents. The action of PSPCL has created impediments in the operation of the commercial mechanism.
CERC has directed CMD PSPCL to appear before CERC on December 18 with a firm payment schedule for liquidation of arrears.
