The commission also permitted the power utilities concerned to enter into a tripartite power sale agreement (PSA) with SECI to purchase power for 25 years.
The commission, which gave time for the general public to file written submissions till Wednesday, is likely to issue an order in a few weeks.
The Commission will now start the process afresh, including publishing a public notice and hearing the views of all stakeholders before issuing a fresh order.
Andhra Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission will continue public hearing of the various petitions filed by the state power utilities claiming true-up charges on November 24.
With some objectors seeking more information on the claims made by the Discoms, the commission directed the utilities to furnish the details before the hearing.
One of the pertinent issues raised by the objectors was the procurement of higher quantum power from markets.
The consumer will have to register a complaint and the Discoms will be liable to pay the compensation automatically.
