ISLAMABAD - Reshma Rental Power Company on Friday returned over Rs4.5 billion advance mobilisation amount which it has taken for installing power plant. A two-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Thursday ordered the Reshma Rental Generation Ltd to pay back rest of the amount with mark-up. The report, submitted by the PEPCO director Friday, stated that the company has returned the advance amount without mark-up. Ashraf Khan Advocate on behalf of the Reshma Power Plant on November 17 had submitted Rs2.5 billion pay order before the bench, while the court had asked him to also return the rest of the amount with mark-up. The Reshma plant was given mobilisation advance for producing 201MW, but it was presently contributing mere 55MW to the national grid. The court had warned the company that it would 'face consequences if failed to abide by the order. An advance mobilisation fund worth Rs4.5 billion was paid to the plant on Oct 3, 2009, after securing a bank loan at 16 per cent mark-up, but the project is yet to achieve the commercial operation date (COD). Federal Housing Minister Faisal Saleh Hayat arguing his case before the apex court had claimed that outstanding amount against Reshma is Rs6 billion along with the mark-up. He had requested the court to order the Reshma plant to return the advance mobilisation fund in dollars in which payments had been made to the RPPs. He said rental power policy had failed because only five out of the 19 initially proposed plants were in line.
