ELECTRICITY SUPPLY REGULATIONS
(SECTION- V)
TARIFFS

81. CHARGES FOR SUPPLY:

Supply of electric energy to various categories of consumers is chargeable at the relevant Schedule of Electricity Tariffs. The particular schedule which will be applicable for a new consumer is usually determined before the connection is actually given and is intimated to the prospective consumer at the time of issue of Demand Notice. This rate is, however, subject to review on the basis of the nature and the quantum of load actually connected. In accordance with Clause 26 of the Conditions of Supply, the Board//Licensee further reserves the right at any time to amend or to alter any of the schedules of tariff with the approval of PSERC. The rates of tariff given hereunder are for the year 2003-2004 as approved by PSERC. General conditions of Board/Licensee's tariffs are as under:-

81.1 Fuel Surcharge: The tariffs are subject to levy of fuel surcharge as may be decided by the Board from time to time.

81.2 Exclusive of Duty and taxes: The tariffs are exclusive of electricity duty, taxes and other chares levied by the Government or other competent authorities from time to time which are payable by the consumers in addition to the charges levied as per the tariff.

81.3 Single Point Delivery: Unless otherwise agreed to or specified, the tariffs are applicable to one point of supply and at a single voltage. Supply at other points or at other voltages shall be separately billed.

81.4 Subject to condition of supply and schedule of service Charges: The tariffs are subject to the provisions of the conditions of supply and schedule of general and service charges relating to the supply of electricity or any amendment/modifications thereof as are enforced from time to time.

81.5 Monthly Minimum Charges: The monthly minimum charges specified in various schedules exclude meter rent, electricity duty, taxes and other charges/rebates and surcharges which shall be charged separately depending upon the character of service, tariff and other clauses of the various schedules as applicable.

81.6 Contract Demand:

81.6.1 Contract demand shall mean the maximum demand in KVA sanctioned to the consumer and the same shall be worked out from sanctioned load in KW by using power factor of 0.88. In case of new connections, the consumers demanding contract demand higher than 60% of the connected load, shall be charged one time contract demand charges as under:-

1.

For Contract Demands above 60% and up to 80% of connected load

=

Rs.200/KVA

2.

For Contract Demands above 80% and up to 100%of connected load

=

Rs.300/KVA

In case of existing consumers requiring extension of load, the above charges shall be leviable on the basis of contract demand of the aggregated connected load or only on the contract demand for extended load whichever is minimum.

The above charges shall not be leviable in respect of H.T. Bulk Supply Consumers and Industrial consumers getting supply at 33 KV and above.

Note:-In case of SP or MS consumers if the load after extension in load falls under LS category, one time contract demand charges shall be worked out after taking his existing demand equivalent to 100% of the sanctioned load by using power factor of 0.88.

81.6.2 In case of HT Bulk Supply Consumers, the sum of the rated capacities of the 11 KV distribution transformers in KVA shall be taken as contract demand for the purpose of levy of monthly minimum charges. No consumer shall effect any change in his contract demand without prior approval of the Board. Consumer availing supply at High tension shall indicate the rated capacities of all the step down transformers in his premises and shall not increase the capacity of step down transformer(s) without the approval of the Board.

81.6.3 For Sugar Mills, Paper Mills, Textile Mills etc., which are/shall be meeting part of their load by running TG set(s), the contract demand will be related to the capacity of the consumer's transformer(s) feeding electric supply to the mills/premises. The minimum contract demand shall not be less than the total capacity of transformer(s) installed by them for feeding the load normally fed from Board/Licensee's supply system.

81.7 The applicability of category of tariff under Schedules LS, MS or SP will be based on the total industrial and general load( i.e. bonafide factory lighting and colony lighting). If a separate 11 KV connection has been released for colony load, the total load shall be sum of industrial load and bonafide factory lighting load only. Also for determining total load, fraction of half and above of a KW should be taken as 1 KW and fraction below half should not be accounted for.

81.8 Factory Lighting and Colony Supply( SP, MS and LS):

81.8.1 Metering equipment for the whole supply( i.e. the supply for the industrial load, bonafide factory lighting load, residential quarters load and street lighting load etc.) shall normally be installed on the H.T.Side at the point of commencement of supply, wherever applicable. However, where separate single point 11 KV connection is released for the colony load, metering equipment for the supply of industrial load and bonafide factory lighting load and colony load shall be installed on H.T.Side separately at the point of commencement of supply.

81.8.2 In case of H.T, consumers( 11 KV and Above) if metering is being done at L.T. side to record the supply due to non-availability of metering equipment, the energy consumption and Maximum Demand of such consumers shall be increased by 3% to account for losses. This shall be applicable to all categories of consumers.

81.8.3 All consumption for bonafide factory lighting and for residential purposes for the factory staff quarters shall be added in the consumption of industrial load, when it is metered separately. However, where separate connection is provided for the colony load only bonafide factory lighting consumption shall be added in the consumption of industrial load.

 

 

?

 

 

 

81.8.4 Unlike L.S. consumers, the industrial and general load of M.S. and S.P. consumers is required to be metered separately and accordingly separate meters should be installed.

81.9 L.T. Surcharge /H.T./E.H.T. rebate .

81.9.1 For Large supply consumers where supply voltage is 11 KV but supply has been given at 400 volts, then a surcharge of 20% as provided under Schedule L.S. is leviable on the energy charges worked out by the application of tariff. A consumer getting supply at 33/66KV will get a rebate of 3% and that getting supply at 132/220 KV will get a rebate of 5%. on consumption charges or on monthly minimum charges whichever becomes applicable. High Voltage rebate will be allowed to all categories of consumers except Railway Traction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

81.9.2 If Supply under schedule MS is allowed at 11 KV, a rebate of 7.5% as given in Para 83.3.3 of MS tariff is to be allowed on the energy charges worked out by the application of tariff. This rebate of 7.5% is not admissible for the bonafide factory lighting, residential quarters and street lighting consumption etc.(which should be metered separately) and billed under Para 83.6 of Schedule MS.

81.10 Monthly Minimum Charges viz-a-vis general consumption:

Energy Charges for bonafide factory lighting and residential quarters/Colony etc. as billed under Para 82.6 of Schedule L.S. under Para 83.6 of Schedule M.S. and under Para 84.4 of Schedule S.P. are adjustable against the monthly minimum charges payment as the monthly minimum charges are based on sum total of industrial and general load.
