Hydel power projects may get a regulatory boost to solve their problems towards offering a competitive tariff structure.

Hydel projects get project loan for 10-15 years, which is a major cause for high tariff in hydel power, resulting discoms reluctant to buy hydel power, power department officials had said earlier. If the useful life is extended in the final regulation then it will be a major relief when projects are facing huge time and cost overruns. The repayment burden can be moderated and that would felicitate demand, a banker told PTI.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh today shared the concern of his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar over "wasteful" flow of river waters into Pakistan, but sought "careful assessment" of the matter.
