The Supreme Court of India (SC) has directed National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) to continue supplying power to Reliance controlled BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd and BSES Yamuna Power Ltd till March 26. SC has directed the discoms to pay Rs 500 m to NTPC as a part payment of its outstanding dues within two weeks. Hearing the petition by the two Reliance discoms, the court issued notice to the central and Delhi governments, the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission and NTPC, asking them to respond to the Reliance plea within two weeks and gave another one week to the discoms to file their rejoinders. The move comes against the backdrop of the Delhi government's recommendation to the regulator for revocation of the licenses issued to the two firms if they failed to pay their dues to NTPC and/or resort to long power outages in the city.
