MNRE (Ministry of New & Renewable Energy) had issued advisory for rooftop solar power system installations. To promote solar power in domestic use MNRE came up with a subsidy scheme but some listed authorized vendors found to be taking advantage of it.

As per the advisory MNRE clarified that DISCOMs are the governing body of subsidy. It is stated that, “It has been brought to the notice of the Ministry that some rooftop solar companies / vendors are setting up rooftop solar plants by claiming that they are authorized vendors by the Ministry. It is clarified that no vendor has been authorized by the Ministry. This scheme is being implemented in the state only by DISCOMs. The DISCOMs have empaneled vendors through the bidding process and have decided rates for setting up a rooftop solar plant.”

It also stated that some vendors are overcharging customers. Almost every DISCOM has provided the online procedure, authorized vendors from the DISCOMs are qualified for rooftop solar installation subsidy schemes.
