Outstanding dues to affect NTPC’s ability to continue supplies in J&K

Outstanding dues to affect NTPC’s ability to continue supplies in J&K

New Delhi, Feb 11 (UNI) NTPC has been supplying around 940 MW of power to the State of J&K from its various power stations. For more than two years now the payment from J&K has been irregular and as on date the outstanding dues of NTPC have reached a staggering Rs 1984 crores.

NTPC has been following up at various levels with J&K PDD as well as J&K Administration for realisation of payments. However, there has been no significant improvement in payment position.

Majority of NTPC’s Stations are coal-based stations which provide round the clock and reliable power to the state. Almost 70-80 per cent of the cost is towards coal supplies which need to be paid in advance.

Therefore, such huge outstanding dues seriously affect NTPC’s ability to continue supplies from its stations. It is noteworthy that bills raised for the power supplied more than a year back ie in Jan’18 are still pending for payment.

Under the circumstances, NTPC has no other option but to regulate power on the J&K PDD. A notice for regulation of power supply dated 11-02-2019 has been served on the J&K PDD to regulate power supplies wef 0000 hrs of 19.02.2019. This will result in reduction of approx. 940 MW power to the state of J&K.
