Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), currently involved in a dispute with Noida administration over payment of Rs 9.7 crore electricity dues, informed it has written to power discom Paschimanchal Vidyut Vitran Nigam (PVVNL) to ask the administration to stop freezing the transporter’s accounts.
“The Director (Operations) of DMRC has written to Managing Director of PVVNL giving reference to the letter written by CEO/NOIDA to Principal Secretary/ Electrical stating that the agreement with DMRC was made with the exemption of the electricity tax, after due approval from UP Government,” DMRC told ETEnergyWorld in a statement. “In the letter dated 12/06/2018, DMRC has also requested MD, PVVNL to inform District Magistrate to stop recovery by freezing DMRC’s account till the settlement of the issues,” it added.
The administration has already recovered a part of the dues by attaching a bank account of the transporter while DMRC is sticking to the stand it is not liable to pay any dues. “The amount is being demanded by M/s PVVNL in respect of the electricity tax for DMRC’s electricity connection in Noida.
As per the agreement between Noida authority and DMRC, this tax is not payable,” a DMRC spokesperson told ETEnergyWorld. Read More
