Appearing for DERC, senior counsel KK Venugopal said the revised tariff for the current year has already been prepared and would be announced if the Court allowed.
However, the Court said it would hear the matter finally on July 25.
The Bench also said that any subsidy announced by the Delhi government would be subject to final outcome of the petition.
