Chennai Metro Rail cannot be treated as special category power consumer


  • The Tamil Nadu Electricity Regulatory Commission has rejected a plea by the Chennai Metro Rail Limited to include it under the special category consumer and provide tariff based on the actual cost of supply, excluding both the subsidy and cross subsidy elements.
  • Earlier, the Appellate Tribunal for Electricity had directed the TNERC to take a clear decision on the issue. 
  • Based on it, the CMRL had moved a remand application before the TNERC.
