En-Lightened Maharashtra

Present Situation - Alarming

Corruption is the cause of shortage of electricity/ load shedding/Highest electricity rates in Maharashtra.

Established capacity of Mahagenco : 10,000 megawatt

Plant availability factor: 83.95%(April to December 2013)

Plant load factor: 64.43% i.e. 50% of total established capacity.

If the Plant availability factor is increased by 20%, there will not be any load shedding and electricity rates will be highly reduced in Maharashtra.

For 1 MW established capacity, National average is Five crores but new projects of Mahagenco requires 7.5 crores to do the same.

Increased capital cost, increased rates of electricity

Scams in Mahagenco

  • Coal scam: Loss caused by not accepting the cheap Linkage coal: 5,280 crore rupees.
  • Loss due to purchasing foreign coal: 3,211 crore rupees.
  • Loss due to purchasing electricity at huge rates by Mahavitaran: 3111 crore rupees.
  • Total loss in 3 years: 11602 crore rupees(The same money was recovered from public).
  • Since objection is not drawn on the coal grade slippage on time, there was loss of 10,000 crore.
  • (Recently, due to one petition, Coal India has paid 1773 crore rupees to Mahagenco for coal slippage. If the complaint was launched on time, 10,000 crores would have been saved).
