Chandigarh electricity department has moved a petition before the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) seeking approval of capital expenditure for the ambitious Smart Grid Project under National Smart Grid Mission. The Union Ministry of Power had recently approved a budget of Rs 28.50 crore for the project against the detail project report (DPR) of Rs 49.67 crore with 30 per cent grant from NSGM. The ministry has set a deadline of 12 months for implementation of the project. However, the project would be developed as self-sustained business model.
