This submission is  in response to the letter dated 13/12/2023 from the  Ministry of Power seeking  comments on the  Draft Electricity (Rights of Consumers) Second Amendment Rules, 2023, which is also available on the MoP website

The draft amendment specifies time limits for some consumer services, where it was not specified in the principal Rules and proposes to tighten some. It also simplifies the procedure for connection for roof top solar systems upto 10 kW.  We broadly feel that this amendment is a good step, but strongly request MoP to provide explanatory memorandum giving the justification and objective for such amendments.
