After selling its iconic headquarters in Mumbai's business district, crisis-hit non-banking finance company Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) has put more commercial properties on the block, including two standalone prime properties, Business Arcade and IL&FS House in Mumbai. Property consultants said the monetisation of these properties owned by the company and its wholly owned subsidiaries is expected to fetch over 7700 crore given their location and size.

However, he declined to comment on the likely recovery to be made through these deals.

Panel Suggests Rs 6-7 Tariff for 6 Power Plants

A government committee has suggested Rs 6.05-7.03 per unit variable tariff for six plants using imported coal that are owned by companies such as Tata Power, Essar Power and JSW Energy, said people with knowledge of the matter, marking a step toward restarting them to ease the electricity shortage. The power companies said the tariffs are good enough for them to start generation, but state electricity distribution companies that have purchase agreements with these plants said they were examining the rates. These are benchmark tariffs that are proposed to be revised weekly or fortnightly in line with international coal prices for units that have a cumulative 8.2 GW capacity Some of this capacity is expected to be operational in the next 20 days. The parties involved can either agree to this benchmark or reach mutual agreement on different tariffs. In case state distribution companies do not buy this power, these plants will still have to operate but sell electricity on the power exchanges. The committee has calculated tariffs for six of the 13 imported coal-based plants mandated to run under the Section 11 order invoked by the power ministry on May 5 to ease power and domestic coal availability, amid projections of 220 GW electricity demand this summer.

Stuck power units to resume generation soon

Lenders, including the State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank and Bank of Baroda, have agreed to extend fresh working capital loans to six power projects lying idle for the past many years, including four imported coal-based units. Also, sector-specific lenders Power Finance Corporation (PFC) and Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) have initiated discussions with several units that are either shut or are operating at very low plant load factor. The lenders' moves follow the directions given by the Union power ministry to them to help the stuck power plants resume generation with working capital support. The government reckons that the electricity shortage in the country may not show any let¬up over the next few weeks due to the high demand in the scorching summer.
