Financial burden shocks KSEB, top brass clueless

Financial burden shocks KSEB, top brass cluelessTop brass of Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) remains clueless even as the board inches towards a financial abyss with banks refusing to extend any more short-term loan to bail the board out. With a poor monsoon leaving all its major hydel projects dry, KSEB will have to spend about Rs 130 crore a month to buy power from other sources, including liquid fuel stations. This amount will treble if the Kerala State Electricity Regulatory Commission rejects KSEB's proposal for more power restrictions and to charge more from domestic users consuming more than 200 units a month.

Sources said the additional financial burden would shoot up to Rs 330 crore a month if the commission says no to tariff revision plan, which was cleared by the Kerala government last week.
