CHAPTER - 6 SUMMARISED STATEMENT OF AGGREGATE REVENUE REQUIREMENT FOR THE YEARS 2011-12, 2012-13 & 2013-14 & REVENUE RECOVERABLE THROUGH TARIFF FOR THE YEAR 2011-12
6.1 Based on the analyses and findings recorded in the foregoing chapters we are now drawing the statements of Aggregate Revenue Requirements (ARR) separately for each of the three years of the third control period covering the years 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14. Such summarized statements are given in Annexure 6A to 6F of this chapter. 6.2 In terms of the Tariff Regulations, we are also to ascertain the amount of revenue recoverable through tariff for the year 2011-12 after carrying out adjustments with the ARR for that year the recoverable / refundable amount determined in Fuel and Power Purchase Cost Adjustment (FPPCA) for the year 2009 2010 and also recoverable / refundable amount in Annual Performance Review (APR) for the year 2009-10. The Commission in its order dated 23.02.2012 in Case No. APR-22/10-11 has determined the net recoverable amount of Rs. 18516.45 lakh from the consumers after taking into consideration the adjustments in both variable costs and fixed costs for 2009-10. The Commission has decided to adjust such net recoverable amount of Rs. 18516.45 lakh with the ARR for 201112 to determine the revenue recoverable through tariff for 2011-12. 6.3 The Commission in its order dated 28.05.2009 in Case No. APR-7/08-09 has determined in APR of CESC Limited for 2007 2008 the net amount of Rs. 12580.35 lakh refundable by CESC Limited to its consumers and WBSEDCL for 2007 2008 after taking into consideration the admissible variable costs (determined in FPPCA vide Commissions Order dated 27.05.2009 in Case No. FPPCA-27/08-09), the admissible fixed costs (determined in APR vide Commissions Order dated 28.05.2009 in Case No. APR-7/08-09) and the

revenue realized by CESC Limited by selling electricity to its consumers and WBSEDCL during that year. The Commission in the tariff order of CESC Limited for the year 2009-10 had decided not to make negative adjustment of any portion of the aforesaid net refundable amount of Rs. 12580.35 lakh, determined in APR for 2007 - 2008, with the ARR of CESC Limited for 2009 2010 to determine the revenue recoverable through tariff by CESC Limited during 2009 2010 and to keep the same as regulatory liability for that year to contain abnormal tariff hike in future years in view of the increased fuel and power purchase cost which CESC Limited would have to incur during that year and which would have to be taken into account in determining the tariff of CESC Limited in future. 6.4 The Commission now considers to adjust the aforesaid refundable amount of Rs. 12580.35 lakh with the ARR for the year 2011 2012. 6.5 Accordingly, the amount of revenue to be recovered through tariff, capacity charges and fixed charges for the year 2011-12 work out as under:
