New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear on Thursday Tata Power Co. Ltd’s appeal against a Delhi high court decision that upheld a government decision to allow Reliance Power Ltd (RPL) to use excess coal from the captive mines meant for the 4,000MW Sasan power project for other such projects being implemented by the company.
Tata Power, a losing bidder for the Sasan power project, had filed a petition in the Delhi high court challenging a decision by a so-called empowered group of ministers (eGoM) to allow the winning bidder, RPL, to use excess coal from captive mines allotted to it for other projects.
The company had then claimed that the eGoM’s decision, coming as it did after the conclusion of the bidding process, “disturbed the fairness, transparency, and the level playing field”.
