February 24: CERC has allowed Tata Power and Adani Power to hike electricity tariffs, on account of rising fuel costs. The order may throw a spanner for states where power tariff cuts have been high on the political agenda. Haryana and Maharashtra, where there have already been tariff cut announcements made earlier, will also take the brunt of this CERC order. Amritha Pillay shares a detailed report on the order’s likely impact on the states.
