The Kerala State Electricity Board has issued an order for cancelling the RfS bids for the development of 200 MW solar power projects in the state. The board has sought the issuance of a fresh tender from the Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission. The tender was for a long-term basis of 25 years. Only one bidder, CIAL Infrastructures Limited, with a bid quantity of 10 MW, managed to furnish all the required documents within the stipulated time. However, as per the tender guidelines issued by the Ministry of Power, to ensure competitiveness in the bidding process, a minimum of two bidders should qualify.
