The Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) has dismissed an instant petition filed by BSES Yamuna Power Limited (BYPL) seeking the review of a penalty of Rs 90,000. This had been imposed under the suo motu proceedings initiated by DERC based on a consumer complaint that said information related to power outages (no current time) was not mentioned in certain bills. During the proceedings, BYPL submitted that the automated meter reading data related to “power off” could not be downloaded due to technical reasons and only the common meter reading instrument reading could be downloaded due to which “no current time” could not be mentioned in certain bills. DERC had imposed the penalty noting that the excuse of system failure was not acceptable and it was paid on October 30, 2013. The review petition was dismissed as it fell short of the requirements for a review, such as the discovery of new evidence or the presence of apparent errors on the face of the record.
