The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) on June 12, 2019, has issued an Office memorandum in order to amend the guidelines for enlistment under the Approved Models and Manufacturers of Solar Photovoltaic Modules (Requirements for compulsory Registration) Order, 2019.

The amendment is made in Para 3 which talks about the application fees. The modified provision is mentioned below:

Para 3: Application Fees:

3.1. The application fee for one model of module or cell shall be Rs. 5,000/- per MW of the total installed manufacturing capacity for solar PV modules and Rs. 5,000/- per MW of the total installed manufacturing capacity for solar PV cells of the applicant.

3.2. The “model” as mentioned in 3.1, refers to modules or cells of same nominal power output rating. All BIS approved modules or cells of the applicant with same nominal power output rating shall be treated as one model.

3.3. In case the application consists of multiple models, the application fee shall be as 3.1 above for one model and additional one percent (1%) of this for every additional model.

3.4. In case, an applicant is already enlisted, for a particular model of solar PV module or cell and applies for enlistment of another model of Solar PV model or cell, then the application fee for such additional model shall be 10% of the prevailing normal application fee. However, if in such subsequent application, there are multiple models, then the fees shall be 10 % of the prevailing normal application fee for one model and 1% for every additional model (e.g if in the subsequent application, two no. models are there, the application fee shall be 10+1= 11% of the prevailing normal application fee). However, the enlistment of additional models shall not have any effect on the validity of original enlistment or renewal thereof. The validity of enlistment shall expire on the same date for all the models of an applicant.

3.5. The application fees can be paid to the account of National Institute of Solar Energy (NISE), in the A/C No., as specified by NISE, by way of NEFT/RTGS, net-banking or any other permitted modes of online payment.
