Promoters shelve plans for India’s third electricity exchange
23 APR, 2014, 04.00AM IST,  ET BUREAU 
NEW DELHI: The promoters of National Power Exchange Ltd (NPEX) have decided to wind up what would have been the country's third electricity exchange. State-run ,  and Power Finance Corporation (PFC) had joined hands with private IT services provider TCS in 2007 to launch the exchange which got a permission from the electricity regulator two years later to trade electricity in the short-term market. 

The two power exchanges operational in India, Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) and Power Exchange of India Ltd (PXIL), account for trading of nearly 3% electricity generated in the country. "NPEX could have been India's first electricity exchange but the promoters could not take it forward despite being the early entrant. Also, they could not work in tandem and PFC ended up acquiring stake in PXIL while other partners were indecisive," an industry executive said. 

The Central Electricity Regulatory Commission said in an order on April 17, "Since the group of promoters of NPEX has recommended for voluntary winding up of the company and board of NPEX has decided not to renew the licence for setting up and operation of the Power Exchange, the commission is of the view that the permission accorded to NPEX for setting up and operation of Power Exchange should be withdrawn." 

Three years after granting approval, the regulator had observed that the promoters did not progress further on setting up the exchange and asked them to place on record the progress they had made. The regulator also sought definite action plan and firm date of commencement of operations at the exchange. However, the promoters sought more time from the regulator. Subsequently, last month, NPEX promoters decided to voluntary wind up the company and not to seek renewal of their licence for short-term electricity trading.
