  • Economic Times, ET Bureau / Hyderabad
  • Created: Mon 25th NOV 2013

The main reason for denial of the Open Access by the respondent UGVCL is that the petitioner is having 3 different HT connections inadjacent premises ownedbythe petitionerwhich were released by therespondents at different times. Therefore, UGVCL hasdenied to grant Open Access stating that the petitioner is not havingseparate legal entity in term of the regulation 4.1.17 of GERC (Electricity Supply Code and related Matters) regulation, 2005.
