The Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission (APERC) on January 28, 2020, has issued a Draft APERC (Constitution of State Advisory Committee and its functioning) First Amendment Regulation, 2020 to amend clause 6(1) of the APERC (Constitution of State Advisory Committee and its functioning) Regulation, 2004.

Clause 6(1) which specifies the fees and allowances for members of the State Advisory Committee will be substituted with the following:

A member of the Committee other than an ex-officio member shall be entitled to a sitting fee for each sitting as the Commission may decide from time to time.

The above clause is preventing the Commission from undertaking a periodic revision of the sitting fee in tune with the changing times.  Therefore, it is decided to amend the Regulation to obviate the need for amending the Regulation every time it is decided to enhance the sitting fee.

The APERC invites views or objections or suggestions of interested persons or stakeholders on or before February 17, 2020. The same may be sent to the Secretary at APERC 11-4-660, 4th Floor, Singareni Bhavan, Red Hills, Hyderabad – 500 004.

This Regulation will come into force with effect from the date of its publication in the official gazette.
