New Delhi, Jul 8 (UNI) The Supreme Court today allowed the Tata Power Company Limited to supply power in suburban areas in Mumbai to consumers who have average consumption up to 1000 KW.
A bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhan and Altamas Kabir allowed the appeals filed by Tata Power Company and MIDC Marol Industries Association and set aside the order of the Maharashtra State Electricity Tribunal (MSET) directing that Tata Company could not supply power to small consumers as it did not have the licence for retail supply of power.
Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) had permitted Tatas to supply power to those consumers having average consumption up to 1000 KW. Reliance Energy Limited had challenged the MERC order before the MSET, contending that Tatas could supply power only to bulk consumers.
