CERC had published draft amendments to the multi-year tariff regulations detailing the process and method of approving costs of emission control systems (ECS) to meet the new environmental norms announced by MoEFCC, and invited comments on it. Prayas made a short submission mainly suggesting the need for some more checks and balances in the cost approval process.

Post the discussions during the virtual public hearing, held on 13th July 2020, Prayas also made a supplementary submission to the CERC towards ensuring effective implementation of ECS and operational compliance of generating companies to the new environmental norms.
