Background note for First Amendment in RERC(Service)
Regulations 2005:

The sanctioned strength of the Commission as approved by the State Government
vide Order No.F-23(4) Energy-2000 dated 26.10.2004 provides for nomenclature of
the various posts at officers level from Assistant Secretary to Dy. Secretary, Joint
Secretary and Special Secretary. Accordingly, the nomenclature has been inserted
in RERC (Service) Regulations 2005.

In order to evolve a uniform staffing pattern for all Commissions across the nation,
the Forum of Regulators which is an association of Electricity Regulatory
Commissions all over India has recommended a model staffing pattern at the
officer level which provides for a hierarchy from Assistant Director to Dy. Director,
Joint Director and Director. Most of the Commissions have already adopted this
staffing pattern.

In order to bring parity in nomenclature of officers of the Commission with other
Commissions and to facilitate interactions of Commission’s officers with their
counterpart and in accordance with the approval received from the State
Government vide its letter No.F(23)(4)/Energy/2000 dated 3.5.2012, it is proposed
that the nomenclature of various posts as appearing at Part-1 of Appendix-A,D & E
of RERC (Service) Regulations, 2005 may be replaced as shown in the draft
