  1. Noida Power Company Limited (NPCL) filed Petition No. 126/MP/2012 seeking a direction to Northern Regional Load Despatch Centre (NRLDC) to charge the Short Term Open Access (STOA) Transmission Charges for Uttar Pradesh @ ` 50/m WH instead of ` 80/MWh from the petitioner for all inter-State open access bilateral transaction and to levy such charges strictly in accordance with the tariff order passed by the Uttar Pradesh State Regulatory Commission (UPERC). The Commission by its order dated 28.11.2011 held that the rates for STOA charges for Uttar Pradesh were specified by the UPERC and the same rate, i.e. @ ` 50/MWh has to be charged instead of rate specified in the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (Open Access in inter State transmission) Regulations, 2008 (hereinafter referred to as "the 2008 regulations"), which was to be made applicable only if the State Commission had not specified the rates. The Respondents 1 to 4 (hereinabove) were directed to refund the excess amount charged from the petitioner on account of application of incorrect STOA charges for Uttar Pradesh. Aggrieved by this order, NPCL has filed the instant review petition seeking review of the Commission's order dated 28.11.2011 in Petition No. 126/MP/2011.
