2020 Power Distribution Tariffs in India – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Power Distribution Tariffs in India - 2020" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The power sector has come a long way with significant achievements on many fronts, such as a doubling of conventional power generation capacity since 2012 with active private participation, renewables increasing from 2 to 12 percent of the energy mix since 2015, and the introduction of financial restructuring reforms for distribution companies to limit the AT&C loss levels to minimum levels. Having said that, despite the implementation of structural reforms in the power distribution segment of India, it still represents the weakest link of the power segment. Despite considerable progress in implementing the EA mandates and associated policies over the past decade, the distribution segment continues to post significant losses. With India having most of the discoms run as state authorities, the operational efficiencies and targeted revenue remains underachieved. However, a few states like Gujarat and Karnataka put up excellent efforts to reduce the AT&C loss levels, which currently stand at nearly 10% and 14%, well below the national average of 21.5% in 2019.

Moreover, under-recovery of the revenues from the end consumer and lack of seamless flow of the revenues remains the challenge for most of the discoms that further pose challenges to improve upon the operational efficiency and improving upon the distribution infrastructure to provide reliable power supply to the end consumers. Hence, India has continuously shown an increasing trend for average cost of supply and average revenue for the discoms that leads to the rise in the distribution tariff of the discoms putting the burden on the end consumers to make the financials strong. Also, multiple distribution tariff slabs and the burden of cross-subsidies fall on industrial consumers in India which is as high as INR 10-12 per unit makes the tariff structure more complex for the discoms which pose threat to power distribution tariff scenario in India.
