The Centre for Regulation and Policy was entrusted with providing regulatory support to PTC India Ltd. for its Special Economic Zone (SEZ) client, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) located in Navi Mumbai, for approval of the power purchase plan and agreement, preparation of ARR and multi-year tariff filing. JNPT, being the developer of the SEZ, is responsible for the provision of utility services, which also includes the supply of electricity within the SEZ area to its consumers.

In FY 2020-21, the Centre for Regulation and Policy carried out a detailed analysis of the energy sale, distribution loss, power purchase quantum and cost, and other financial parameters, for the preparation of the Power Purchase, ARR and tariff petition. During the project, WISE will be assisting SEZ and PTC in submitting replies to the queries raised by MERC and other stakeholders. The order will be issued in FY 2021-22.
