Rs.20,000 Crore Delhi Discom Tariff SCAM - DERC Also Partner
March12, 2014

Honorable Lt Governor of Delhi
Shri. Najeeb Jung
Raj Niwas,
Delhi -110005

Copy to CAG,

90% Of SCAM DETECTABLE IN DERC DOCUMENTS IN 10 DAYS

Respected Sir,
Petitioner has found that honorable Lt Governor was Principal Energy
Specialist at ADB and Visiting Fellow at Oxford University from
1999-2002 When Foundation of Biggest Power Scam was Laid under VK
Sood, President DERC.

BLUE PRINT OF THE Rs. 20,000 Crore Delhi Power Scam

FIRST LEVEL OF SCAM (1999-June2002)

1.] DERC didn't insist on Metering of All Distribution Transformers in
Delhi and it was this petitioners relentless campaign that
BYPL/BYPL/NDPL installed Meters to 4500 Distribution Transformers in
2005-06.

2.]  T&D Losses in NDPL were 40% in 2000 when DERC raised power tariff
by 50% from minimum Rs.1 per unit to Rs.1.50 per unit.

[Rs.1000 Cost - Rs.600 Recovered to Rs.900 Recovered. T&D Losses
reduced to 10%]

3.]  DERC instead of reducing Losses accepted 20% increased in T&D
Losses in 2002 and further raised Tariff by 20% to minimum Rs.1.80 per
unit. This is 80% increase over Rs.1080 from base of Rs.1000]

SECOND LEVEL OF SCAM (June2002- Dec.2002)

4.]  DERC accepted very low rate of T&D Loss Reduction When NDPL/
BRPL/ BYPL/ were expected to be Making Profits.

    2003-04    2004-05    2005-06    2006-07    2007-08
Loss Reduction      0.5%    2.25%    4.5%    5.5%    4.25%
Loss Levels     47.6%    45.35%    40.85%    35.35%    31.10%
COMPONENT OF T&D LOSSES
Technical    Theft    Metering    Billing    Collection    Others
15%    15%    20%    30%    10%    10%

In 2-3 months NDPL+ hired Meter Testing Squads, Recovery Agents -
against Metering Billing and Collection NDPL+ Recovered more than
losses - for example if a meter is 1% Slow But Well Within 3% (+/-)
Was Replaced But a Meter Running 17% or More Was Not Replaced.
When on Day of Takeover 80% Increase in Tariff in Run Up to
Dismantling of DVB Had NEGLIGIBLE LOSSES - DERC Fraudulently Accepted
48% Base Losses & Very Slow Loss Reduction Program.

Example: - Maximum Power Cuts in High Theft Area - Lowest Cuts in No
Loss Feeders.

Three Months NDPL was 75% PLUS - Not Declaring Loss Reduction.

THIRD LEVEL OF SCAM (Dec.2002 to 2006)

5.  Factory Sealed Meters were Opened & Tweaked to run 20% to 30% Fast
and these Electronic Meters had features to Run even when no load was
served. For example Neutral of two meters are connected at Common
Points like Booster Pump and Staircase Lights Both Meters would
register consumption.

6.  Consumers were Offered to Enhance Their Load, when lakhs of
consumers applied to NDPL+,  They Were Trapped in FABRICATED THEFT
CASES. Load Factor of Domestic Consumer is 11% But DERC didn't mention
Load Factor in Assessing Consumption - thus Innocent Consumers with
Fast Running Meters were also Slapped 'Fabricated Theft Cases' of 405
Times Normal Monthly Billing. [9 LF x 6 Months, 5 Times Penal Rate x
1.5 High Slab Rate = 405]

http://delhidistrictcourts.nic.in/sep05/Archana%20Mathur%20Vs.%20BSES.htm
Example - Archna Mathur was Extorted to Pay Penalty When the Meter was
Open to BRPL for Inspection & Testing from July2002 to Jan2005 and the
Computerized Meters report every single Tempering 'How is That BRPL
Detected Theft Only after 6 moths That Too For Lean Period October
onwards.'

NDPL+ Didn't Offer Tenants to SEEK INDEPENDENT CONNECTIONS THAT WOULD
MINIMIZED ARCHANA MATHURS EXPLOITATION.

100 Unit Consumption BRPL/BYPL/NDPL Charged 65520 Units
    
BRPL Procured Corrupted Delhi High Court order 1. Even if a 2 KW
Geyser is run for 30 minutes for 100 days in a year Consumption would
be just 100 units in a year but in Fabricated Theft Case - it would be
182 days x 24 Hrs x 2 Kw x 5 Penal Rate x 1.5 Highest Slab = 65520
Units.

8. Inspection report shows a geyser of 2 KW rating, room heaters 2 in
number of 2000 watt rating, 1 air conditioner of 2.25 KW rating,
refrigerator, motor pump for boosting water apart from electrical
lamps, bulbs, tubes and other electrical gadgets in the house. Gadgets
show the standard of living maintained by the petitioner.

The consumer is required to get connected load of 12.641 KW sanctioned.

Summer Load barely adds up to 3 KW - AC 2.25KW+ Fridge 100W + Booster
500W Plus Light Points etc - But BRPL Procured Corrupted Order to
Enhance Load to 12.64 KW.
FABRICATED THEFT CASE REORDED RS.1000 Crore RECOVERY - UNRECORDER
EXTORTION EXCEED RS.7000 Crores

7.  Capital Equipment was Hired at 60% Higher Cost through sister companies.

8. Mechanical Meters were first replaced by Electronic Fast Meters
with Counter and second time replaced by Computerized Meters with
inbuilt PROGRMS to run fast and return to within tolerance in a second
hence detectable only in Surprise Checks. Petitioner found over
hundred such meters operating 3% to 60% fast.

9.  Hired Unskilled Low Paid Staff on Short Contracts - Against
Rs.300,000 per staff paid just Rs.60,000 only didn't make PDF
contribution etc. This in itself is Rs. 6000 crore Scam.

10.  BRPL/BYPL/NDPL didn't provide 'Uninterrupted Power' for Petty
Complaints Feeders Were Shutdown for Hours [Picture At The End]

FOURTH LEVEL OF SCAM (2006 to 2009)

10.  BRPL/BYPL/NDPL Deliberately Didn't Manage The Load - Instead of
Shutting Down 2-3 Biggest Loads on A Transformer or 5-10 Biggest Loads
on a Feeder entire Feeder or Transformer was Shut Down Every Time -
DERC deliberately ignored Petitioner's Suggestion in Writing Many
Times. At this time around Rs.4000 crores in Capital Expenditure of
Rs.8000 so far was already invested but there were no corresponding
benefits noticeable.

Shops & Offices Not PENALIZED for Operating Late Night

11.  From 2000 itself Consumers were forced to install Low Efficiency
INVERTORS & GENERATORS - BRPL/BYPL/NDPL were thus pumping in 20% Extra
Power in Consumer Connections which is much more than Peak Shortage.

FOURTH LEVEL OF SCAM (2008 to 2014)

12. Around this time few Private Pithead Power generators were
commissioned - BRPL/BYPL/NDPL supplied power at Very Power Factor and
High Voltages - to Pump 20% to 30% more power in to consumer
connections and CREATE ARTIFICIAL POWER SHORTAGE and buy Rs.1 per unit
electricity at over Rs.10 Per Unit.

13. DERC deliberately had not APPROVED ROOFTOP Solar for consumers -
each 100 sq.meter can produce 10 KW of Rooftop Power and once
installed for next 25 hours provide Almost Free Power and 500,000
Units.

14.  DERC also CONSPIRED Against DOMESTIC CONSUMERS who BASE LOAD
Consumers drawing power 24x365 basis ought to have been charged
against Base Load Stations but were charged for PEAK LOAD.

THUS DOMESTIC CONSUMERS WHO DRAW POWER AT AVERAGE RATE OF Rs.2.5 PER
UNIT ARE REQUIRED TO PAY RS.6 PER UNIT AND COMMERCIAL & OFFICE
CONSUMERS DRAWING POWER DURING DAYTIME PEAK HOURS AT UPTO RS.12 PER
UNIT PAY JUST RS.8 PER UNIT.

THESE SHALL ADD UP TO Rs.20,000 Cr SCAM

Cost of Operating Generators, Invertors, Rs.7000 crore Fabricated
Theft Cases, Fast Meters Rs.10,000 crores etc Not in BOOKS =

Rs.50,000 Crore SCAM.

DERC posts discoms' tariff petitions online
TIMES NEWS NETWORK

New Delhi: The regulatory body DERC has posted the power tariff
petitions of the three private discoms on its website and will soon
invite public feedback. As the general elections are scheduled for
April-May and the poll code in place, the tariff announcement is not
likely before July. Officials said after the process begins, it takes
up to four months to announce the revised tariff.

    This time, the discoms have asked for fast recovery of past dues
through a higher surcharge instead of a tariff hike. In their
petitions submitted in January, they did not seek any hike in the
current year, but wanted liquidation of past regulatory assets, DERC
sources said.

    The discoms want any change in fuel costs to be recompensed by
using the quarterly PPAC formula. According to sources, the discoms
had communicated in their tariff petitions that they would be able to
manage their finances with PPAC and recovery of past dues for the next
fiscal, without a tariff hike based on current costs.

    The discoms were granted a PPAC hike of 6%-8% by way of a
surcharge. The hike, which has been accounted for in power bills from
February 1, is on total energy charges for additional costs in power
purchase by discoms. This is above what has been allowed in the tariff
for quarter of October 1 to December 31, 2013.

    Discoms' demand for recovery of past dues is likely to be met by
the regulator. In the last tariff order of July 2013, DERC had
assessed Rs 11,000 crore of regulatory assets, till March 31, 2012,
which were due to power companies. An 8% surcharge was levied. "We
will have to examine how much discoms have managed to recover through
the surcharge. We will have to decide if the previous surcharge should
continue and the recovery mechanism to be employed," said a senior
DERC official.
