The dispute over power-sharing between Tata Power Company (TPC) and Reliance Infrastructure (R-Infra) will be decided by the state power regulator, the Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC).
The Bombay High Court on Monday directed the TPC to approach the Commission as other disputes between the two electricity suppliers are also under its consideration. The division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice S C Dharmadhikari asked the Commission to decide on the matter in six weeks.
TPC has moved HC challenging the state's May 2010 directive asking it to continue supplying 360 MW to R-Infra. The Tatas had asked the State Load Dispatch Center to stop supply, saying it needed that power in view of its increased requirements in south Mumbai.
