AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat Electricity Regulatory Commission (GERC) granted a licence to Torrent Power Limited (TPL) to supply electricity to the Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR), a greenfield industrial city being developed some 100km from Ahmedabad.

The state power regulator accorded TPL a licence to carrying out distribution and retail supply of electricity in the Dholera SIR area for 25 years.

In April, GERC had in-principle decided to issue a power distribution licence to TPL for Dholera SIR as the private sector company fulfilled the criteria laid down for the licence. GERC invited suggestions and objections to its intention to grant a licence to TPL.

After hearing the objections and suggestions of stakeholders, GERC recently decided to award the DSIR electricity distribution licence to TPL.
