Ministry of Power requests CERC to expedite the process for safeguard duty pass through

The Ministry of Power (MoP) has requested the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) to expedite the process for the exercise of the safeguard duty pass-through option. The pass-through option had been made applicable for solar projects following the recent imposition of safeguard duty on solar cells and modules imported from China and Malaysia. The MoP has asked the CERC to treat change of cost related to change in duties, taxes, cess, etc. as pass-through if it is not mentioned in the PPA. In addition to this, the CERC would be required to issue an order for pass-through along with calculations regarding the per unit impact, within 30 days of the developers’ filing their petitions.
