CERC’s draft tariff rules for FY19-24 to favour power

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC’s) draft tariff regulations for five years between FY2019-2024 will be favourable for power generators, as the regulator has maintained the status quo on most of the parameters, says India Ratings (Ind-Ra).
