BJP moves to High Court against DERC for tariff hike
BJP Delhi Pradesh Executive Committee member Ravinder Yadav has filed a petition in the High Court against DERC for on-issuance of a tariff order for 34% tariff hike in respect of electricity consumption w.e.f. 1st July, 2012, for judicial scrutiny.
The petition further contends that the hike is against public interest and without justification and transparency. While hearing the petition for admission the High Court has issued notice to DERC returnable within one week. During the last week of June, DERC Chairman P.D. Sudhakar announced the price hike and reiterated that consumers have to pay the high rate w.e.f. 1st July, 2012.
BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta also asked Delhi Govt. and DERC as to how they put effect of 34% tariff hike from 1st July and on which basis. He also said that all the three companies viz NDPL, BYPL and BRPL are conspirators and are in collusion with DERC and Delhi Govt. and are squeezing blood of the people of Delhi in the name of supply of electricity.
In fact they have betrayed with the people in Delhi and have created arbitrarily such situation in yesteryears which is nowhere in any Metro city in India. Gupta has further contended that when Audit Report of all the three companies for the year 2010-11 and 2011-12 have not been finalised, how Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit has announced that the companies running in loss.The former DERC Chairman Virender Singh already disclosed last year that all the three companies have earned profit of Rs. 522 crores. This is a contradictory statement of both present and earlier DERC Chairman and truth must come to light with judicial intervention.
