The Ministry of Power issued letter No. 23/23/2005-R&R(Vol-IV) dated 22nd May, 2018 seeking comments and suggestions on the draft amendment in the provisions relating to captive generation plants in the Electricity Rules, 2005. With the proliferation of captive power plants, increase in group captive and renewable energy captive options, the proposed amendments, come at an opportune time to address emerging trends, lack of operational clarity on certain issues and to introduce measures to encourage serious long-term investment in captive options in India. However, there are some issues where more clarity and more detailed processes would be useful to prevent policy and implementation issues and ensure efficient and periodic monitoring of this sector. In this context, some of the comments and suggestions are given in Prayas (Energy Group)'s submission. The draft amendments as well as PEG submission is available below.
