MNRE extends commissioning date of solar projects affected by GST

The MNRE has issued an order to extend the commercial operation date (COD) of solar PV projects affected by the imposition of the goods and services tax (GST) and related issues. The MNRE order comes in response to requests from developers seeking an extension in the scheduled COD of solar PV projects, citing temporary business disruption and subsequent delays in project commissioning because of GST introduction from July 1, 2017. The COD extension is allowed for a period of up to two months. Only those projects that have an overlap in their COD and the two-month period from July 1, 2017 to August 31, 2017 are eligible to claim this extension.
