APTEL said that in accordance with the guidelines and the CERC Regulations, the Appropriate Commission, the trading margin shall be decided mutually by the SECI, the trading licensee and the WPPs and in turn by the distribution licensees.
Supreme court was of the opinion that the “casual approach of APTEL, in not reasoning how such findings could be rendered, cannot be countenanced. As a judicial tribunal, dealing with contracts and bargains, which are entered into by parties with equal bargaining power, APTEL is not expected to casually render findings of coercion, or fraud, without proper pleadings or proof, or without probing into evidence.”
The Supreme Court upheld the judgement passed by the APTEL after observing that the generating companies were entitled to compensation so as to restore them to the same economic position, if the Change in Law had not occurred.
