MUMBAI, April 15 India's central electricity
regulator has allowed Tata Power Co Ltd to raise
electricity tariffs on a temporary basis at its Mundra power
plant on account of rising cost of imported coal, the power
utility said on Monday.
The ruling follows a similar order by the regulator earlier
this month allowing higher tariffs at Adani Power Ltd's
neighbouring power plant in the western state of
India's power sector has struggled with domestic coal
shortages and has become increasingly reliant on costlier
imports to meet the country's rapidly growing energy needs.
