The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has passed an order in the matter of non-compliance of the Procedure, Terms and Conditions for grant of trading licence and other related matters Regulations, 2009 by several new trading licensees. As per the aforementioned regulation, the trading licensees are required to undertake electricity trading and failure to do so may lead to the revocation of their licences.
