INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT FOR THE NEXT GENERATION

  • What are the challenges in the Energy sector?
  • Overall energy: A variety of subsidies  and taxes distort the energy market and promote the use of inefficient/over efficient fuels and also make Indian exports and domestic production uncompetitive as energy taxes are not under GST, and hence, no input credit is given.
  • Power: The high  industrial/commercial tariff and the cross subsidy regime have affected the competitiveness of the industrial and commercial sectors.
  • Oil and Gas: Lack of market driven  gas prices for old fields disincentivises further production. Also, the gas pipeline infrastructure is not adequate.
  • Coal: There is a tendency to expand  open-cast mining and discourage underground operation even for better quality coal reserves.
  • Renewable Energy: High energy costs   result in reneging on old Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and erode their sanctity. This leads to uncertainty regarding power off-take and consequently endangers further investments.
