PATNA: Union power minister RK Singh said on Tuesday that power distribution companies, or discoms, would have to pay penalty for load shedding in any area across the country from the next financial year.

Singh said discoms would also have to bear the financial burden arising from aggregate transmission and commercial (AT&C) losses beyond the base mark of 15 per cent.

“The twin proposals have been included in the Centre’s draft power policy that would be put in the public domain to invite suggestions from the public. The final policy will be effective from the next financial year,” Singh said.

Elaborating on the proposals, Singh said the quantum of penalty to be levied on account of load shedding would be decided by the power regulatory authority of the state concerned.

Similarly, it has been the practice that discoms account for AT&C losses while claiming reimbursements from the government for the services they render while transmitting power. Once the new power policy becomes effective, discoms would not be reimbursed for the AT&C losses beyond the base mark of 15 per cent.

Singh was talking about the achievements made by his ministry in the last 48 months while addressing reporters from seven state capitals — Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, Patna, Guwahati, Jaipur and Bhopal — through video conference.

Against the backdrop of the rising prices of petrol and diesel, he said relieving the burden of farmers in the country, including Bihar, who use diesel to run pumping sets for irrigation purposes, was on the high-priority list of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Accordingly, his ministry has introduced the Kusum scheme under which farmers will have the option to install solar pump sets.
