The three private power distribution companies (discoms) in the capital inflated their dues to be recovered from consumers by almost Rs 8,000 crore, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has said in its report on the discoms and claimed that there is scope for reducing tariffs in the city. The 212-page confidential report, accessed by TOI, has indicted the three power distribution companies BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) and BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) controlled by Anil Ambani’s Reliance group, and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd (TPDDL) on several counts. It says the companies manipulated consumer figures and scrap sale details, and took a series of actions detrimental to consumer interests. These include buying costly power, inflating costs, suppressing revenue, dealing with other private companies without tenders and giving undue favours to group companies. Its most damning revelation relates to inflation of regulatory assets (RA) previously-incurred losses that can be recovered from consumers if permitted by the regulatory authority.
