India’s CERC issues connectivity and GNA to ISTS regulations [free access]

June 13, 2022

Indian Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) has issued the Connectivity and General Network Access (GNA) to the Inter-State Transmission System (ISTS) Regulations, 2022. It provides a framework to facilitate non-discriminatory open access to generating companies for ISTS through GNA.


The rules specify the application for grant of connectivity and GNA, and eligibility for connectivity to ISTS, among others. As per these regulations, applications should be made online to the nodal agency and be digitally signed by the applicant. An application fee of INR500,000, along with applicable taxes, should accompany each application for grant of connectivity and GNA. However, no application fee will be payable by state transmission utilities while applying for GNA.
