Under directions from the Punjab State Electricity Regulatory Commission, the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has announced relaxation in the provisions for review of security (consumption) and payment of additional security (consumption).

As per methodology evolved by the PSPCL and communicated to its field offices through a memo dated April 27, 2021, the security (consumption) for the year 2021-22 shall be reviewed on the basis of average monthly consumption for the twelve months period from April to March for the year 2019-20 or 2020-21, whichever is higher.

It has been stated that in case of reduction in load/demand by the consumer during FY 2019-20 or 2020-21, the security (consumption) shall be reviewed for the year 2021-22 based on consumption in proportion to reduced load/demand as on March 31, 2021.

The PSPCL chief engineer/commercial has said that in case of new connections or extension of load/demand of an existing connection during FY 2019-20 or 2020-21, the first review shall be carried out only in 2022-23.

It has also been decided that the adequacy of the amount of Security (consumption) shall be reviewed by PSPCL after every three years (preferably after revision of tariff for the relevant year) except for HT/EHT (high tension/extra high tension) consumers in whose case review of Security (consumption) shall be carried out annually. — OC
