New Delhi: The Delhi High court on Wednesday accepted a plea filed by Delhi government seeking more time for framing guidelines to check monopoly of private discoms.

A high court bench of Justice D Murugesan and Justice DK Jain granted two weeks time to the city government for framing guidelines. The matter has been listed for next hearing on 10th April.

A social activist, Srichand Jain had filed a petition in the High Court against Delhi government, Central Electricity Regulatory Committee, Delhi Electricity Regulatory Committee and BSES Yamuna Power Limited.

The city government had sought more time as it didn’t file its response on the plea.
