The Aam Aadmi Party Sunday demanded that the law setting up the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) should be amended to make the panel accountable to the people as it showed "extreme reluctance" to fix the accountability for power cuts in the city.
Congress on Friday warned against any possible hike in power tariff, saying it will launch a massive agitation if the rates are increased by power regulator DERC, coming under pressure from private power distribution companies.
The Appellate Tribunal for Electricity Wednesday directed the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) not to to pass the final order in the matter of suspension of licences of BSES discoms as sought by the Aam Aadmi Party government.
The DERC, which decides power tariff in the city, has not yet received any request from the city government to cut power rates and it may take at least three months for reviewing the existing charges if such a proposal is made.
Delhi BJP Friday sought to find fault with DERC`s reply on their queries related to tariff determination process, saying they have not given any specific answer and demanded the resignation of its chief.
