Keeping in view the Declared Capacity (DC) offered to the Delhi power distribution companies (Discoms) in the last 10 days, the Ministry of Power has issued instructions to NTPC and DVC to secure power supply to Delhi.

This will ensure that Delhi Discoms will get as much power as requisitioned by them as per their demand, the Ministry said in a statement.

As per the directions of the Power Ministry, both NTPC and DVC may offer the normative declared capacity (DC) to the Delhi Discoms as per their allocations made to them under the respective PPAs, from their coal-based power stations.

Both NTPC and DVC have committed to providing as much electricity to Delhi as demanded by Discoms of Delhi.

Secondly, NTPC may offer the normative declared capacity (DC) to the Delhi Discoms as per their allocations (from gas-based power plants) made to them under respective PPAs. The gas available from all sources including SPOT, LT-RLNG, etc may be included while offering the DC to Delhi Discoms.

In addition, the government has also issued guidelines regarding the utilisation of unallocated power to meet the increased demand from coal-based power generation.

Under these guidelines, States have been requested to use the unallocated power for supplying electricity to the consumers of the State; and in case of surplus power, the States are requested to intimate so that this power can be reallocated to other needy States. 

However, the Power Ministry also warned States that if any State is found selling power in power exchange or not scheduling this unallocated power, their unallocated power may be temporarily reduced or withdrawn and reallocated to other States which are in need of such power.
