To ensure transparency in implementation of rooftop solar projects under capital subsidy Scheme for residential, social and institutional sectors, Ministry vide its OM no. 03/88/201S-16/GCRT dated 08.09.2016 (copy attached) had issued guidelines mandating the Implementing Agencies (SNAs/ Discoms/ Municipal Corporations etc.) to undertake
transparent bidding process for discovery of price for installation of solar rooftop projects.
It is once again re-iterated that Implementing Agencies must adhere to above guidelines and selection of bidders and discovery of project cost for rooftop solar under Ministry’s scheme must be through a transparent competitive bidding process.
