All India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) has demanded the review of Punjab power generation policy and early revival of existing power purchase agreements (PPAs) between Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) and independent power producers (IPPs).
As per their demand, IPPs should be free to sell the power in market instead of taking fixed charges from state discoms without generating or supplying a single unit of electricity as per deemed generation clause.
AIPEF spokesperson V.K. Gupta said the Punjab power generation policy of 2010 was supposed to be on the model of Gujarat policy of 2009. The Gujarat policy contained several safeguards regarding right of refusal and surrender of unwanted power without paying for capacity charges, whereas the Punjab policy was heavily twisted in favour of IPPs with safeguards for state power utility removed.
