BEFORE THE DELHI ELECTRICITY REGULATORY

 

PETITION UNDER THE ELECTRICITY ACT 2003

 

THE PETITIONER RESPECTFULLY SHOWETH:

 

1.       That the Petitioner (hereinafter referred to as ‘NDMC’ or ‘petitioner’) is a Municipal Council entrusted with the distribution of electricity to the consumers in the New Delhi area under Section 195 to 201 of the New Delhi Municipal Council Act 1994.

 

2.       That NDMC has the powers and obligations of a Licensee under the Indian Electricity Act 1910 in respect of the New Delhi Area.

 

3.       That under Section 200 of the New Delhi Municipal Council Act 1994, NDMC has the power to fix charges to be levied for the electricity supplied by it, subject to the provisions of any law for the time being in force.

 

4.       That NDMC filed its ARR and Tariff Petition for the Financial Year 2005-06 under Section 62 of the Electricity Act 2003 (EA 2003) and in accordance with the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission Comprehensive (Conduct of Business) Regulations, 2001 and the Hon’ble Commission passed its Order on the aforesaid ARR & Tariff Petition (Tariff Order) on November 2, 2005.

 

5.       That NDMC is filing this Petition – along with the Retail Tariff Formats, duly filled-in, and supporting documents in validation of the various estimates considered in the filing – under Section 62 of the Electricity Act 2003 (EA 2003) and in accordance with the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission Comprehensive (Conduct of Business) Regulations, 2001 for:

i.         Truing up its Aggregate Revenue Requirement for FY 2005-06 as approved by the Hon’ble Commission in its Tariff Order

ii.       Approval of Aggregate Revenue Requirement for FY 2006-07

iii.      Determination of Bulk Supply Tariff and Retail Supply Tariffs (RST) to be charged by NDMC from the consumers served by it in the New Delhi area for FY 2006-07

 

6.       That this Petition includes the following documents:

i.         Affidavit verifying the Petition and the Power of Attorney for filing the same (attached as (i) in Volume I of this Petition).

ii.       Demand Draft No. 940278 dated 28.3.2006 drawn on State Bank of India, New Delhi (Main) for an amount of Rs. 1.00 Lac (Rs. One Lac only) towards filing fee.

iii.      Detailed formats along-with explanatory notes (Volume II of this Petition)

iv.     Soft Copy of the Petition

 

7.       That in making the aforesaid submission, NDMC has estimated the annual tariff income from demand estimates, which have been derived from statistical modelling, as applicable to the different categories of consumers.

 

8.       That NDMC has projected the financial performance in FY 2006-07 by considering the estimated revenue expenditure based on anticipated costs, financial charges, etc., which will be involved in conducting the business activity and meeting the demand for service.

 

9.       That the double entry accounting system has yet not been implemented in NDMC. For the purpose of the reforms and efficiency in the urban governance, the Government of India (GoI) had taken up the initiative of developing a ‘National Municipal Accounting Manual’ to provide a framework of National Municipal Accounting and a simplified tool kit to the Urban Local Bodies for recording the accounting entries. This initiative was taken up during 2005-06. NDMC has decided to adopt the National Municipal Accounting Manual and NDMC’s Accounts Manual containing the accounting rules, regulations and procedures is being modified by customizing the Municipal Accounting Manual to the requirements of NDMC. Therefore, the schedule for implementation of the double entry accounting system in NDMC has undergone a change. Meanwhile, NDMC continues to follow the cash flow accounting system.

 

10.   That a number of units/offices handling activities related to the electricity function do not have separate accommodation and are being accommodated in NDMC buildings both at the headquarter office and site offices. It is proposed to charge the rent of these accommodations as expenses of the electricity function. NDMC has adopted the CPWD rates to determine the rent for these units/offices instead of market value, as the market value of such offices would be very high.

 

11.   That the information pertaining to FY 2004-05 submitted by NDMC during the regulatory process followed up by the Commission for the issue of the Tariff Order for FY 2005-06 was based on estimates of expenses as available at that time. NDMC now has more accurate information available on the expenses incurred during FY 2005-06. The same is being submitted by way of this petition.

 

12.   That the entity for supply of electricity in NDMC is considered as a department of NDMC like other departments and not as a separate commercial undertaking. Therefore, unlike other electricity utilities, the systems of obtaining actual expenses as and when incurred are not in place in NDMC. Therefore, NDMC is not in a position to provide the details of actual expenses incurred during FY 2005-06 under some expense heads. As a result, the estimates for FY 2005-06 for such expense heads are based on the budget estimates as given in NDMC’s budget for FY 2005-06. The Petitioner will endeavour to provide this information in due course.

 

13.   That the budget of the Council for an ensuing financial year is prepared after many deliberations and detailed scrutiny within the Council on the proposals submitted by the various departments of NDMC after considering various factors and the ground realities. Therefore, the budget estimates for FY 2005-06 may be considered for the purpose of truing up of ARR of FY 2005-06 in case of those expense heads where actual information is not available. With the finalisation of the budget for FY 2006-07 and availability of revised estimates for FY 2005-06, the same will be submitted to the Honourable Commission for the purpose of truing up of expenses for FY 2005-06.

 

14.   That the Tariff Order for FY 2005-06 was issued by the Honourable Commission on November 2, 2005. The Honourable Commission would appreciate that the time gap between the issuance of this Order and the filing of this Petition is very small. The Petitioner has therefore, not been able to implement complete directives issued by the Honourable Commission in this Tariff Order. The Honourable Commission would also appreciate that since the entity for supply of electricity in NDMC is a department of NDMC like other departments and not a separate commercial undertaking, the requisite systems for maintenance of separate information desired by the Honourable Commission or procedures as directed by the Honourable Commission are not in place. Further, the Honourable Commission would appreciate the regulatory process in the electricity sector is new to NDMC and NDMC lacks the regulatory preparedness to cater to the regulatory information set-up.

 

On account of the above-mentioned reasons as well as the short time tenure that has elapsed between the issue of the last tariff Order and the filing of this Petition, NDMC has not been able to implement complete directives issued by the Honourable Commission. NDMC is making efforts to institute the procedures and systems required for the implementation of the directives issued by the Honourable Commission. NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to take a lenient view, considering the practical constraints and limited time gap for the compliance of directives issued by the Honourable Commission.

 

 

 

PRAYER

 

NDMC requests the Honourable Commission:

 

1.       To examine the petition as deemed appropriate and approve the accompanying Revenue Requirement for FY 2006-07 so that the Petitioner is able to earn a reasonable and justified return after due provision of all legitimate expenses.

 

2.       To determine the Retail Supply Tariff chargeable to the consumers and the Bulk Supply Tariff that will be payable to the Delhi Transco Limited for purchase of power.

 

3.       To true up the Aggregate Revenue Requirement for FY 2005-06 and any shortfall in revenue requirement arising out of this truing up exercise be allowed to be adjusted in FY 2006-07.

1.1     CAPITAL BASE

The Capital Base is the value of original gross fixed assets, works in progress, investment made and working capital reduced by accumulated depreciation, government loans, approved borrowings, security deposits, tariffs and dividend control reserves. The capital base is estimated at Rs. 8974.62 in FY 2005-06 and at Rs. 8920.08 in FY 2006-07 as per the summary in Table 1.1.

The computation of capital base has been undertaken in accordance with the provisions under the Sixth Schedule and is explained below.

 

a.       The revised estimates of gross block of fixed assets as at March 31, 2006 is Rs. 31934 Lakh on the basis of the capital expenditure being undertaken in FY 2005-06. The capital expenditure programme during 2005-06 is estimated at Rs. 386 Lakhs including replacement works of Rs. 233 Lakhs. Replacement works are necessary as the distribution network of NDMC with ageing has become weak, and the existing assets need to be replaced to maintain the distribution network to a normal satisfactory level. It is expected that the entire works-in-progress and 50% of the capital expenditure works for FY 2005-06 would be completed and the assets would be put into use during the current year itself. Thus, an amount of Rs. 780 Lakhs gets transferred to the assets that are in use.

 

b.      The capital expenditure programme during FY 2006-07 is estimated at Rs. 1448 Lakhs including replacement works of Rs. 522 Lakhs. Capital expenditure to the extent of Rs. 1573 Lakhs is estimated to be completed and put into use during FY 2006-07. The Capital Expenditure includes capitalization of Employee cost. The details of capital expenditure programme for FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07 is provided in Annexure I. The capital expenditure programme during FY 2006-07 includes replacement works planned for FY 2006-07. The revised estimates of replacement works for FY 2005-06 and the proposed replacement works for FY 2006-07 are provided in Annexure II.

 

c.       Cost of stores under capital base is estimated at average Rs. 126 Lakhs in FY 2005-06 and is projected at average Rs. 136 Lakhs.    The revised estimates for average cash/bank balances is Rs. 607 Lakhs for FY 2005-06. For FY 2006-07, average cash/bank balances are projected at Rs. 667 Lakhs. 

 

d.      The security deposit available as on April 1, 2005 was Rs. 1899 Lakhs. The security deposit as on February 28, 2006 is Rs. 2231 Lakhs and is estimated at Rs. 2434 Lakhs at the end of FY 2005-06.

 

 

 

 

1.2        REASONABLE RETURN

Reasonable return has been computed at 16% of the capital base plus 0.5% on outstanding loans as per provisions of the Sixth Schedule. NDMC requests the honourable Commission to approve the reasonable return as submitted by NDMC.

1.3        SALES PROJECTION

NDMC has estimated sales of 987.32 MU during FY 2005-06 and projected sales of 1020.31 MU for FY 2006-07. The sales for FY 2005-06 have been estimated on the basis of actual sales for the period April 2005 – October 2005 and the anticipated sales during the period November 2005 – March 2006. For FY 2006-07, NDMC has used the Compounded Annual Growth (CAGR) methodology to arrive at the total sales for the year. The CAGR for the period 2000-01 to 2005-06 i.e. 3.57% has been used for this purpose. The category wise sales are estimated in proportion to the category-wise sales during FY 2004-05.

1.4        TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION LOSS

The Honourable Commission has approved target Transmission and Distribution (T&D) loss level of 11.60% for FY 2005-06. As against this, the T&D losses for FY 2005-06 are estimated at 11.5%. The Honourable Commission would appreciate that NDMC’s network is of old vintage and little efforts have been made towards strengthening and refurbishment of system in the past. Therefore, there are practical constraints at present beyond the reasonable control of NDMC to further reduce the technical losses in the system.

 

NDMC would like to highlight that commercial losses by way of theft are negligible in NDMC’s area. While some commercial losses do occur on account of non-performing and under performing meters, the magnitude of these losses is minimal. Further, in view of the already low level of T&D losses, NDMC submits that the T&D losses be maintained at the current level of 11.5% for FY 2006-07.

 

1.5        POWER PURCHASE / ENERGY REQUIREMENT

The Honourable Commission has in its tariff order for NDMC for FY 2005-06 approved the ARR on the basis of energy requirement of 1126.31 MUs i.e. 1251 MkVAh. As against the energy requirement considered by the Honourable Commission, NDMC has consumed 1155.23 MkVAh between April 2005 and February 2006. Further, NDMC has estimated its energy requirement for FY 2005-06 at 1239 MkVAh. For FY 2006-07, NDMC has projected energy requirement of 1281 MkVAh to meet the projected energy sales of 1020.31 MU at 11.5% T&D loss.

The power purchase cost for FY 2005-06 has been estimated at Rs. 31847.85 Lakh as against Rs. 32164 Lakh approved by the Honourable Commission. NDMC would like to submit that the power purchase cost for the energy consumed during the period April 2005 – February 2006 is Rs. 29691 Lakh. The same can be seen in Annexure III. For FY 2006-07, NDMC has projected the power purchase cost at the prevailing BST of Rs.2.57/kVAh.

 

Here, NDMC would like to submit that NDMC does not own any generating stations and the entire energy requirement is met by purchasing power from Delhi Transco Ltd. at the rates fixed by the Honourable Commission.  NDMC is not contemplating to procure power from any other source during FY 2006-07.

 

The projected power purchase cost for the FY 2006-07 has been summarized in table 1.5.

1.6        EMPLOYEE COST

The expense head of employee cost involves cost of manpower in service and terminal benefits payable to them. Cost of manpower in services includes salary and allowances, bonus, LTC and honorarium. Terminal benefits are payable to retiring employees and includes pension, death cum retirement gratuity as well payments to the family of deceased employee.

 

As mentioned in the prayer to this Petition, the entity for supply of electricity in NDMC is considered as a department of NDMC like other departments and not as a separate commercial undertaking. Therefore, unlike other electricity utilities, the practice of maintaining separate records of expenses for electricity sector is not presently followed in NDMC. As a result, the estimates of employee cost for FY 2005-06 are based on the budget estimates reasonably and justifiably allocated to the electricity utility, as given in NDMC’s budget for FY 2005-06. The Petitioner requests the Honourable Commission to consider this estimate for the purpose of truing up of ARR of FY 2005-06 as against the approved expenditure of Rs. 6071.28 Lakhs (before capitalisation).

 

For FY 2006-07, NDMC has adopted the component wise CAGR for FY 2000-01 to FY 2005-06 to project the various components of employee cost for FY 2006-07, except in case of the bonus to be paid to employees. It has been assumed that the payment of bonus will be in the proportion to the salary and allowance during FY 2005-06. Table 1.6 summarises the break-up of employee expenses. This table also indicates the revised estimates of employee costs for FY 2004-05.

As mentioned in the ARR and Tariff Petition for the Financial Year 2005-06, the practice of capitalisation of employee cost has not been pursued in NDMC. The direct and indirect expenses relating to construction are not being separately maintained in NDMC. However, from FY 2005-06, NDMC has proposed capitalisation of cost of employees involved and associated with capital expenditure in respect of transmission and distribution network. It is proposed that capitalisation of the employee cost be continued at 10% for FY 2006-07.

1.7        ADMINISTRATION AND GENERAL EXPENSES

Administration and General (A&G) expenses include expenses on computerisation, communication, security and other expenses. A&G expenses for FY 2005-06 have been estimated at Rs. 51.18 Lakh. For FY 2006-07, these expenses are anticipated to increase to Rs. 64.45 Lakh. The estimates for FY 2005-06 have been determined on the basis of actual expenses incurred during part of the year and the projections for the remaining part of the year. The estimates for FY 2006-07 have been determined keeping in mind the various schemes being implemented in NDMC and the expected expenditure as determined during the discussions leading to the finalisation of the budget proposals of NDMC for FY 2006-07, being noted to the Council for approval.

 

In particular, NDMC would like to highlight that the extent of computerization is increasing in all departments of NDMC. The computerisation would require investments for the purchase of hardware and software for the electricity department as well. Further, NDMC is also implementing the ABT regime. The implementation of ABT would lead to an increase in costs of wireless communication.

 

NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to approve the A&G expenses as submitted by NDMC.

As shown in Table 1.9, other admissible expenses are estimated at Rs. 4092 Lakhs for FY 2005-06 and are expected to increase to Rs. 4175.60 Lakhs during FY 2006-07. The major sub-heads under this expense and the details of the expenses incurred under these sub-heads in the current year and the ensuing year is enumerated below:

 

Rent Rates and Taxes

The Honourable Commission is aware that there are no separate buildings for NDMC’s electricity offices. All electricity offices/sub-stations/service stations are located in NDMC buildings. As a result, the asset value of these buildings is not included in the value of assets relating to electricity supply. However, the rent for such accommodation would have to be included in the expenses of the electricity function of NDMC to determine the true cost of electricity supply to the consumers. NDMC therefore, proposes to charge rent for the electricity offices/sub-stations/service stations of NDMC located in NDMC’s buildings as an expense of the electricity department.

 

NDMC is aware that this rent should be calculated at reasonable and justified rates. Accordingly, the rent charged by NDMC for the buildings owned by NDMC and let out to Ministries and other Government Offices i.e. Rs. 675/= per sq. m. per month has been used to arrive at the figures for rent for FY 2005-06. The rent for FY 2005-06 has been worked out at Rs. 3949.15 Lakhs. For FY 2006-07, NDMC has continued with the rent of Rs. 3949 Lakhs.  

 

NDMC would like to draw the attention of the Honourable Commission to the fact that NDMC has decided to adopt the National Municipal Accounting Manual. NDMC’s Accounts Manual is being modified by customizing the Municipal Accounting Manual to the requirements of NDMC. The modification of NDMC’s Accounting Manual recognises the fact that the activities of the NDMC which are commercial or quasi-commercial in nature are required to be placed on a self-sustaining basis. This includes the activities of a) Estate Department, b) Municipal Housing Department and, c) Municipal Office Buildings being maintained by the Civil Engineering Department, which must pay for their maintenance and renewal through rent, license fee, notional rent (in case of municipal buildings occupied by different departments/functionaries).

 

With the implementation of the new Accounting Manual of NDMC, the electricity department would be required to pay rent for the electricity offices/sub-stations/service stations located in NDMC buildings and the same would be shown as expenses of the electricity department in NDMC’s budget and books of account. In light of this fact, NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to consider the rent for the accommodations of the electricity department as part of the expenses of the electricity function of NDMC and approve the rent claimed by NDMC for the electricity department.

 

Legal charges

Legal charges are budgeted for inter alia meeting costs to be incurred for protecting the Council’s legal rights before the Honourable Civil Courts. At the same time, there is an ongoing litigation with Reliance Energy Ltd. on their application for distribution and retail supply licence in NDMC’s area for supply of electricity. The Honourable Commission is aware of the background of this on-going litigation. NDMC, therefore, has no option but to defend/protect its legal rights against the aforesaid litigation and in the process has incurred and will be incurring such expenses

 

Accordingly, the revised estimates for legal charges for FY 2005-06 are Rs. 30 Lakh. For FY 2006-07, legal charges are budgeted on an estimated basis since NDMC, at this stage, cannot precisely indicate the tenure of the proceedings.

 

Audit fees

The Audit fees for FY 2005-06 is estimated at Rs. 25 lakhs and is conservatively estimated to increase to Rs. 30 lakhs.

 

Processing fee payable to DERC and consultancy fees

The provision for processing fees, payable to DERC on the ARR and Tariff Petition and consultancy charges are estimated at Rs.30 lakhs for FY 2005-06.  For FY 2006-07, these charges are estimated at Rs. 52 lakhs. This is primarily on account of increase in consultancy charges to be paid by NDMC. NDMC proposes to outsource assignments for (a) development of a plan for system improvement, improvement in metering system, load management in short term as well as in the long term in the ABT regime, cost effective load management, etc. and (b) for evaluation of the existing distribution system with the objective of bringing about supply and demand side improvements to improve the system reliability level. NDMC also proposes to outsource the mapping of distribution assets to the pole level. NDMC is in the process of holding discussions with agencies technically equipped for performing these assignments.

 

Consumer Forum

The expenses under this head include expenses incurred towards the Consumers Grievance Redressal Forum as well as the ombudsman’s office. NDMC has estimated Rs. 35 Lakhs under this head for FY 2006-07.

 

Provision for bad and doubtful debts

The arrears outstanding for more than 3 years in respect of electricity supply were about 1054 lakhs in 2004-05. This has been assessed to increase by about Rs. 55 Lakhs during FY 2006-07. NDMC proposes to make a provision for bad and doubtful debts @ 5% for FY 2005-06 as well as for FY 2006-07. NDMC therefore, requests the Honourable Commission to approve the provision for bad and doubtful debts at Rs. 52.70 lakhs for FY 2005-06 and at Rs. 55.5 Lakhs for FY 2006-07.

 

Implementation of software to meet DERC’s requirements for information filing under RIMS

The Honourable Commission would appreciate that the software systems available with NDMC are not of the level required for the purpose of implementation of RIMS, as mandated by the Honourable Commission. Therefore, NDMC has estimated that NDMC would have to incur one-time expenses of Rs. 30 Lakhs to implement the software systems required for the purpose of RIMS.

 

NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to approve the above expenses submitted by NDMC.

1.9        ALLOCATION OF EXPENDITURE RELATING TO (A) ADMINISTRATIVE DEPARTMENT (B) CIVIL ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT TO ELECTRICITY SUPPLY

The Honourable Commission is aware that NDMC has a separate Administrative Department consisting of NDMC Board, Finance Department, General Administration, Law Department, Public Relations, Staff and Labour welfare, Vigilance Department, Auto workshop, Information and Technology, Engineer in Chief etc. There is a separate Civil Engineering Department and the services of this department are utilised for civil portion of electrical works. Thus, the services of the Administrative Department and Civil Engineering Department are common for all the functions carried out by the NDMC and the expenditure pertaining to these Departments is allocated to all the functions.  So far the function of electricity has not been separated from the NDMC and it was considered as part of NDMC functions. Now that the electricity supply needs to be looked into separately as a distribution licensee and as such the expenditure in respect of Administrative Department and Civil Engineering Department needs to be allocated reasonably and justifiably to the electricity supply.

 

In its ARR and tariff petition for FY 2005-06, NDMC had proposed to allocate 30% of the expenses on these departments to electricity supply.  In the tariff order for FY 2005-06, the Honourable Commission had allocated 19% of expenses of the administrative department to electricity supply. The Honourable Commission also considered an amount of Rs.1000 Lakh towards the allocation of expenses of Civil Department to electricity supply. Further, the Honourable Commission had directed that the cost of works carried out by civil engineering department for electricity department should be separately booked and the complete details of such works and associated costs at the end of the year be provide to the Honourable Commission.

 

The Honourable Commission would appreciate that since the last Tariff Order was issued on November 2, 2005, the time gap between the issuance of this Order and the filing of this Petition is very small. Further, the civil engineering department and electricity department being two separate departments within NDMC, building regulatory preparedness within departments not subject to the regulatory environment of the electricity sector is a time consuming process. In view of these factors, NDMC has not been able to implement the above directive of the Commission at present. NDMC assures the Honourable Commission that NDMC is making efforts to institute the procedures and systems required for the implementation of the directives issued by the Honourable Commission.

 

NDMC would like to highlight that the benefits of Shiv Shankran Scales were extended to the employees specifically working in the electricity department of NDMC and also to common categories of employees working in other departments of NDMC. The employees working in other departments of NDMC are presently being paid salaries as per the provisions of the Fifth Pay Commission. As such, employees working in the electricity department are comparatively better paid employees as compared to their counterparts working in other departments, and also entitled for other better allied benefits/facilities based on higher pay structure, emergency duties performed by them, allotment of municipal accommodations, official working space, official vehicles, telephone/mobile phone facilities, advances paid to employees, medical facilities, etc. Further, the allocation of 30% expenditure of these departments is also justified considering that while allocating the expenses of 30%, the indirect expenses having monetary/commercial value as incurred for the smooth functioning of these departments has not been taken into account.

 

While NDMC feels that 30% of the expenses on the Administrative Department and Civil Engineering departments should be allocated to electricity supply, NDMC is aware that it has not been able to compile the information desired by the Honourable Commission. Therefore, NDMC has considered the amount of Rs. 3922 Lakhs (as approved by the Honourable Commission in the last tariff order) towards the functioning of these departments during FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07. NDMC submits to the Commission to approve the allocation of these expenses incurred on the Administrative Department and Civil Engineering departments to electricity supply.

1.10    REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE EXPENSES

These expenses include expenses on repairs and maintenance of transformers, capacitor banks, lines, switchgears, cable network etc., vehicles, furniture & fixtures, office equipment, etc. R&M expenses in FY 2005-06 have been estimated at Rs. 1,513.15 Lakh on the basis of actual expenses incurred during part of the year and the projections for the remaining year.

 

R&M charges are estimated to increase to Rs. 1607 Lakh in FY 2006-07, representing an increase of 6.25% over the current year. NDMC would like to submit that NDMC has a vintage and weak distribution network, which warrants a higher degree of maintenance to ensure reasonable availability, reliability and quality of supply. Further, the Honourable Commission would appreciate that there has been an inflationary trend in prices of raw materials required for R&M activities. Therefore, NDMC submits to the Commission to approve the R&M charges for FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07, without any disallowance.

1.11    DEPRECIATION

In the last Tariff Order, the Honourable Commission directed to submit the break-up of opening block of assets and assets capitalised during the year as per the classification specified in the Appendix II to Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (Terms and Conditions of Tariff) Regulations, 2004 while submitting the Petition for FY 2006-07. The Honourable Commission would appreciate that since the last Tariff Order was issued on November 2, 2005, the time gap between the issuance of this Order and the filing of this Petition is very small. Therefore, the Petitioner has not been able to prepare the details of fixed assets asset clarification-wise.

 

Pending preparation of assets- asset classification wise, the average rate of depreciation for distribution assets @ 3.6% has been adopted by NDMC. Further, NDMC has considered the average of opening and closing balance of fixed assets for estimating the depreciation during the year. Accordingly, the amount booked under depreciation is Rs. 1136 Lakhs in FY 2005-06 and Rs. 1178 Lakhs in FY 2006-07. NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to approve the same.

 

1.12    INTEREST CHARGES

No loans are outstanding against power during FY 2005-06. NDMC has made no fresh borrowings during FY 2005-06. Further, NDMC does not propose any borrowings for FY 2006-07. Therefore no interest expenditure is considered for FY 2006-07.

 

1.13    NON-TARIFF INCOME

The revised estimates of non-tariff income for FY 2005-06 and projections for FY 2006-07 are given below. NDMC would like to submit to the Honourable Commission that NDMC has billed Rs. 4 Crores as charges for misuse of electricity to various consumers during FY 2005-06. The same has been duly taken into account in determining non-tariff income.

 

NDMC expects that in FY 2006-07, all components of non-tariff income, except meter rent, will increase by 10% over that in FY 2005-06. NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to approve the same.

2.      TARIFF PROPOSAL FOR FY 06-07

 

2.1        EXPECTED REVENUE AT EXISTING TARIFF IN FY 2005-06

The revenue from the sale of power at the existing tariff and estimated demand for NDMC for FY 2005-06 is Rs. 45537 Lakhs. The same can be seen in table 2.1. NDMC would like to highlight that the introduction of two-part tariff for consumers with load 10 kW and above has led to a considerable reduction in the revenues realized by NDMC from these categories. The Honourable Commission would appreciate that consumers like hotels and large commercial installations within NDMC’s area of supply are able to manage the power factor to their advantage, with the result that the introduction of two-part tariff has led to a loss of revenue from such consumers.

 

2.2        REVENUE FROM SALE OF POWER AT EXISTING TARIFF IN FY 2006-07

The revenue from the sale of power at the existing tariff and projected demand for the NDMC for FY 2006-07 is projected at Rs. 47299 Lakhs. The details can be seen in table 2.2.

 

2.3        REVENUE DEFICIT AT EXISTING TARIFF

The revenue deficit of NDMC for FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07 is detailed in table 2.3. The computation of revenue, expenditure and reasonable return has already been detailed in the earlier part of the petition.

As shown in the above table, the shortfall in revenue for the ensuing year viz. FY 2006-07 is estimated at Rs 3568.26 Lakhs. Similarly, the current year’s gap in terms of the shortfall in the recovery of expenditure (including reasonable return) for FY 2005-06 has been computed at Rs 3203.36 Lakhs, resulting in the cumulative revenue gap of Rs. 6772 Lakhs.

 

Accordingly, NDMC submits following proposal to cover the shortfall in revenue, for the consideration of the Honourable Commission.

 

 

 

2.4        COVERAGE OF REVENUE GAP

NDMC proposes to cover the cumulative revenue gap of Rs. 6772 Lakhs through additional revenue from proposed tariff revision. ((Revenue at proposed tariff is summarized in Section 2.6 of this petition).

 

2.5        TARIFF REVISION PROPOSAL FOR FY 2006-07

Table 2.4 summarizes the existing and proposed tariff structure for various consumer categories. NDMC has proposed a tariff increase of 15% for all categories of consumers to be able to recover the revenue deficit for FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07. NDMC requests the Honourable Commission to accept the tariff proposal as suggested by NDMC.

2.6        REVENUE FROM SALE OF POWER AT PROPOSED TARIFFS

The revenue from sale of power at proposed tariff for FY 2006-07 is determined on the basis of energy sales estimated in Section 1.3 and category wise tariff proposed by NDMC in this petition. NDMC would like to submit that NDMC expects that there will be an increase of 15% in the revenue realized by way of demand charges during FY 2006-07. Further, there will be an increase of 10% in the revenue realized by way of minimum charges in FY 2006-07. The total revenue in FY 2006-07 works out to Rs. 54070.43 in comparison to Rs. 47298.82 Lakhs at existing tariffs for FY 2006-07. The details can be seen in table 2.5

 

2.7        ADDITIONAL REVENUE FROM TARIFF HIKE

The proposed tariff will lead to additional revenue of about Rs. 6771.60 Lakhs, which would be sufficient to meet the revenue gap of Rs. 6772 Lakhs for FY 2005-06 and FY 2006-07.
