    Union Minister for Power and Renewable Energy RK Singh has stated that the case regarding the electricity dues owed by Telangana to Andhra Pradesh is currently being heard in the Supreme Court. The next steps will be taken based on the court’s decision.

    RK Singh further explained that after the state’s bifurcation, from June 2, 2014 to June 10, 2017, Andhra Pradesh Power Generation Corporation Limited (APGENCO) supplied power to Telangana discoms. In August 2022, the Union Government issued orders to the Ministry of Power stating that Telangana must pay the arrears of Rs 6,756.92 crore within 30 days, as per the Andhra Pradesh State Bifurcation Act, 2014.
