A day after Reliance Group Company BSES moved Supreme Court against NTPC’s threat to cut power supply in the national capital over non-payment of dues, the apex court directed it to deposit Rs 50 crore within two weeks.
Observing that the consumers should not suffer, the Supreme Court further asked NTPC not to cut power supply.
This came after state-run NTPC had on Tuesday said it might be forced to suspend electricity supply to the two Delhi discoms – BSES Rajdhani and BSES Yamuna – if they failed to clear their outstanding bills in time.
After issuing notices to BSES Rajdhani and BSES Yamuna on Saturday last, NTPC had said that it was in trouble and unless its dues were cleared the company might have to stop power supply to these discoms.
“We are in a difficult situation. If we are not paid in time, we will have to regulate nearly 2,000 MW of power, we have (other) buyers for it,” Chairman and Managing Director, NTPC, Arup Roy Choudhury had said.
