The Electricity Act 2003 envisages a radical change in vis-a-vis financial autonomy of the Commission is concerned. The Act authorises the State government to establish a fund to be called as State Electricity Regulatory Commission Fund. This fund would receive all the grants, loans, fees etc.. This arrangement would enable the Commission to sustain itself through its own fund, a clear departure from the present system of dependancy on Government funding.
